Theme: Future IT Systems - A Chance or a Risk for Fundamental Rights?. The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has pubished a new report - "Unter watchful eyes - biometrics EU IT-systems and fundamental rights". It explores the impact of IT Systems, that are increasingly being used for migration and security. IT boostes efficiency and can help trace missing children and combat identity theft. But there are alos some risks, that needs to solve. About 50 percent of European border and visa officials interviewed by FRA spoke of data entry mistakes in their IT Systems, often because of misspellings, lack of interpretation or fingerprints being assigned tot the wrong person. Another risk could be hacked data by oppressive regimes. Such issues call for strong safeguards controlling data access and monitoring how data are beiing used. The EU already uses the Visa Information System, the Schengen Information System and EURODAC system for identification of applicants. EU proposes making these and future systems interoperable to share information. More, FRA: Under watchful eyes - EU IT Systems and Fundemental Rights
