Consob Monday – Italian regulator orders black-out of 3 websites
Like every Monday over the last couple of months, the Italian Consob ordered the black-out of websites that illegally offer financial services to Italian consumers. This time three websites have been ordered to be blacked out. The Italian Growth Decree has authorized the Italian regulator to order internet service providers to block access from Italy to websites offering financial services without the proper authorization. Within the EU, Consob is currently the only regulator to take this effective measure.
