Whilst VARA recognises the potential benefit to VASPs of Outsourcing certain business activities to third-party Service Providers, Outsourcing poses a number of challenges from an operational and regulatory perspective. Outsourcing may increase a VASP’s dependency on a third party and potentially reduce its control over proprietary and client-related information and systems. This creates risks for the VASP in respect of business disruption, security of data and, in some cases, may create risks to investors in Virtual Assets and the wider market.
