The last quarter of 2023 was particularly fruitful in terms of new regulatory developments and reviews of the level of implementation of key standards such as RDA&RR and IFRS 9.

On the technological front, it highlights the development of guides and standards for cryptoassets and digital operational resilience at a global and European level. The White House issued an Executive Order on the Safe Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of AI.
