Secure communication means

​​​​​​The Agency requires Security to continuously align the technological capabilities with the evolving needs of the Member States in order to perform its tasks successfully. Thus, building trust among eu-LISA and a variety of its stakeholders represents a key part of Security's mission. 

The Agency's Security maintains secure and trustworthy communication means, while paying special attention to the following stakeholders:

  • The Member states: The security of the systems' communication infrastructure affects the exchange between the Member States and eu-LISA (via the network provider), and thereby, the information entrusted to the Agency. For that reason, the communication lines need to be well ensured (Art. 7 of Agency's establishing regulation).​

  • The private stakeholders: The Agency works with private contractors involved in the MWO (maintenance in working order). This allows the central system to provide the expected service, while assuring the provider's compliancy with the security measures.

  • Other European Bodies and Agencies: eu-LISA operates a secure network infrastr​​ucture. Besides that, expertise-sharing and networking take place also with other agencies, bodies and authorities operating in the area of freedom, security and justice (such as the European Commission, CEPOL, EASO, ENISA, EUROJUST, EUROPOL, FRONTEX and FRA).
