Event Details



PSD2 (Revised Payment Services Directive) is the directive that disrupts traditional banking, paving the way for new and innovative payments systems, setting new requirements and new obligations to Payment Service Providers (PSPs).


Open Banking obliges banks and other account holding institutions to enable third party providers (TPPs) to access the payment account data of their clients, allowing them to provide new, innovative products and services. The Regulatory Technical Standards has set out specific requirements on strong customer authentication and secure communication between banks or other account holding institutions and TPPs.


The programme looks at the key changes established by PSD2 compared to PSD1, the six Titles of the Directive, the PSD2 Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) and Open Banking, but also provides an understanding of how all these are brought together to ensure customer protection.



Training Objectives


By the end of the programme the participants will be able to:


  • Understand the new features brought by PSD2 compared to PSD1
  • Be familiar with the key provisions of the Directive
  • Explain what Open Banking is and what are its implications
  • Understand the requirements for Strong Customer Authentication and Dynamic Linking
