  • Both, EU Commission and ECB are particularly engaged to make internet payments more secure. The ECB formed a forum of European central banks and supervisory authorities, called SecuRe Pay, to discuss and eventually agree on a set of rules for the enhancing of security of internet payments, one of the most important of such rules being the strong customer authentification when making internet payments or accessing payment data. The rules were finally issued as recommendations of the ECB in January 2014.
    The EU Commission included in July 2014 the same basic rule on strong customer authentification within its proposal for a Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2).
