The shadow of PSD2, due to come into force in January 2018, is now looming large over the banking and payments industry. The associated Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS), delegated to the European Banking Authority, will mandate compliance with new stringent ‘strong customer authentication’ rules, which may change the way consumers make online payments.
