Case Study


PDS2 compliance programme management for a large French bank

Context & Objectives

Our client is a large French bank which has launched a programme to comply with PDS2 regulations.

The release in 2015 of PSD2 (which entered into force in September 2019) has shaken up the banking world and profoundly impacted the then-nascent Open Banking. This regulation impacts banks in 3 major aspects in particular:

  • the implementation of strong customer authentication (SCA)
  • the secure release of bank data to third parties via APIs
  • strengthening regulatory reporting.

The consultant engaged by our client was in charge of the PDS2 compliance programme management.

Procedural approach

  • Construction of the back-planning and division of the project into projects/sub-projects with the project managers, taking into account the associated deadlines
  • Implementation of comitology (piloting committee, customer points, etc.) by integrating the Agile mode
  • Support for the construction of specifications


  • Preparation with all the group’s brands before the work was carried out
  • 100% of customers equipped with SCA
  • Putting PDS2 APIs into production
  • Establishment of regulatory reporting
