    Following the recommendations of the Capability Review, APRA will also strengthen and intensify its focus and resources allocated to the supervision of governance, culture, remuneration, and accountability as well as technology-related risks and operational resilience. In addition, a new Accountability Regime unit is being established and this unit will be dedicated to delivering on the government’s planned extension of the Banking Executive Accountability Regime across all the industries APRA regulates.
