The European Commission recognizes the potential risks associated with the misuse of artificial intelligence (AI) by criminals. To proactively address these concerns, the Commission has implemented key regulations and collaborations:

  • AI Act (2021):
    • Guidelines for AI system development and use based on risk profile.
    • Bans exploitative and manipulative practices.
    • Mandates requirements for high-risk AI systems.
    • Establishes transparency rules for chatbots and deep fakes.
  • Digital Services Act (DSA):
    • Introduces risk management and transparency rules.
    • Addresses issues like illegal content, disinformation, and non-discrimination/minor protection.
  • Europol and Commission Collaboration:
    • Raising awareness among law enforcement authorities.
    • Europol's Innovation Lab monitors emerging technologies.
    • Eurojust's cybercrime team provides support in cybercrime cases.

The New Wave of AI Regulation in the EU: Implications and Strategies for Financial Institutions

  • The European Commission is leading AI regulation with the proposed AI Act and Digital Services Act, addressing potential risks across various sectors.
  • The AI Act provides guidelines, banning exploitative practices, mandating requirements for high-risk AI systems, and imposing transparency rules for tools like chatbots and deep fakes.
  • Financial institutions within the EU face significant regulatory changes, requiring increased transparency, prohibition of certain AI practices, and heightened oversight from bodies like Europol.
  • To adapt, institutions should establish robust AI governance, review existing applications for compliance, enhance risk management, and conduct employee training.
  • Collaborating with regulatory bodies, such as Europol's Innovation Lab and Eurojust tackling cybercrime, ensures effective responses to AI-related challenges.
  • Given the swift changes, financial institutions must act promptly, as the next 2 to 3 years could see significant shifts in the AI regulatory landscape.
