    BaFin Issues Digitization Strategy for Supervision of Financial Sector

    February 26, 2019

    BaFin published its digitization strategy in the context of the progressive digitization and the phenomenon of "Big Data and Artificial Intelligence" (BDAI), which are rapidly changing the financial market. The three pillars of this digitization strategy are supervising and regulating changes stemming from digitization, ensuring safety of IT systems and data used by supervisors, and developing or transforming BaFin in the face of advancing digitization.

    With its digitization strategy, BaFin wants to show how it intends to set the course in these three fields of action. The digitization strategy document describes the overall goals for each field of the above three fields of action. In addition to the baseline and the status quo, a selection of the next steps currently planned to achieve those goals have been also listed. However, in view of the constant digital change, such a representation cannot cover the entire spectrum of all necessary measures. In addition, neither the overall goals nor the paths there are static. Therefore, these measures continue to evolve dynamically and need to be continuously reviewed and adjusted, if necessary. In many areas, the authority already works and thinks largely digitally. However, BaFin is guided by an ambitious benchmark: from 2025 onward, it wants to be one of the world's leading supervisory authorities in dealing with the ongoing digitization.
