Abstract These two lectures constitute a reappraisal and an update of the status of the Flavour Changing Neutral Current (FCNC) and CP violation issues in supersymmetry. The first lecture discusses these points in the framework of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), while the second one provides an analysis in a generic low-energy supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model. The goal of these lectures is twofold: on one hand we present a qualitative and quantitative discussion of the threat that FCNC and CP violation represent on supersymmetry model building; on the other hand, we point out how precious FCNC and CP violation may be in obtaining some signals of the presence of supersymmetry at low energy in the years that separate us from the advent of LHC physics. In particular, concerning this latter point, we emphasize and thoroughly analyze the role of experimental searches for rare B decays and CP violation in B physics.
