The European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT Systems in the area of freedom, security and justice (eu-Lisa) is an agency of the European Union that was founded in 2012 to ensure the uninterrupted operation of large-scale IT systems within the area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ).[1] eu-Lisa is in Tallinn, Estonia, whilst its operational centre is in Strasbourg. It is directed by Krum Garkov.[2]


eu-Lisa is responsible for the operational management of IT-systems EURODAC, SIS II and VIS, while ensuring information security and data protection.[3] Thereby, it allows for immediate data exchange among member states. Furthermore, eu-Lisa evolves and develops new IT systems alongside building up a Centre of Excellence and conducting training, monitoring, and reporting. The agency describes itself as "one of the enablers of an integrated response to existing and emerging threats to European security". As such, it facilitates the practical implementation of political priorities and legal instruments.[4]
