New methods in banking supervision Online expert panel

Deadline for application

23 February 2024

Please note

Active participation in the form of a short presentation on new supervisory methods in your country is mandatory.


Banking supervisors need to adapt to banks’ new business models. Information technology is becoming ever more important to the functioning of banks and banking supervision. These technologies involve risks as well as many opportunities. At the same time, resources are scarce and supervisors must adapt by striving for greater quality and efficiency.

This panel provides an overview of supervisory and regulatory approaches to digital banks, cloud outsourcing and penetration tests (e.g. EU DORA), as well as crypto-assets (e.g. EU MICA). The sessions will also discuss the typical issues and challenges that banking supervisors face during their own transformation, e.g. in relation to digitisation and big data, but also supervisory strategy development, second line of defense, off-site examinations, or a “sandbox” approach for supervisors.

Active participation is expected in this course, and participants should be prepared to discuss typical issues and problems faced in the IT usage of banks under their supervision.

It will focus on both theory and practice wherever possible.


  • Introduction to the course, tour de table of participants’ backgrounds and interests
  • Overview of the European and German banking systems and supervision systems
  • Introduction to and deep dive on selected topics, e. g. digital banks, crypo-assets, cloud outsourcing, penetration tests, supervisory approaches to enhancing quality and efficiency
