Having become essential for the banking or insurance sectors, cloud providers could in the future be directly supervised by European financial regulators. The European Commission presented a proposal in this direction last year.

The European Commission unveiled its proposal for the digital resilience of the financial sector last September.

What if, tomorrow, the European financial policemen no longer supervised only the banks or the insurance companies, but also… the GAFA? This is still only a scenario, but the authorities are multiplying the messages in this direction.

« It is up to us, regulators, to treat technological players exactly like banking players “, Said Wednesday, the governor of the Bank of France, François Villeroy de Galhau before the Finance Committee of the National Assembly.
