Schengen Information system SIS QUO VADIS?

One of the largest EU information system, the Schengen Information System (SIS), has been upgraded with new functionalities which help in border management, law enforcement and judicial cooperation. The new system can now alert us on additional risks such as, children at risk of abduction by parents/guardians or taken unlawfully abroad, vulnerable adults at risk of becoming victims of gender-based violence as well as identifying unknown perpetrators of serious crime such as terrorist offences. Complementing the exchange of information based on the Prüm regulations, corresponding updates aiming at facilitating the exchange of information regarding such crimes are also facilitated. 

Malta has benefitted from a budget €1.2 EU Funds, under the Internal Security Funds, to implement such project.
