Security & Compliance

Are you using public cloud service providers?

Yes, for our cloud version, we use AWS, and the default data center is located in Frankfurt (Germany). However, depending on customers' regulatory requirements we can also provide them separate Datamin instances in other locations.

How is personal data information (PII) stored and secured (employees, customers, etc.)? Is there data processed outside the EU?

By default, all data is stored in the EU in the AWS data center in Frankfurt (Germany). That's where the personal information of customers is also stored. Unless it is a separate Datamin's instance located in a custom location required by a customer.

Do you conduct regular internal or external audits?

A basic audit is done by the engineering team for every new deployment of the new code or infrastructure, and then a more extended one is done once per quarter. Once per year, we conduct an external audit with one of the independent external firms.

Is there a dedicated Information Security Officer in Datamin?

We don't have a dedicated one, but this responsibility is taken care of by our CEO Artem Demchenkov, who has solid Information Security experience, including 8 years of being responsible for it in the FinTech industry (Funding Circle Germany, Billie) as Head of Engineering and CTO. Billie is regulated by a German regulator BAFIN and Artem has been taking care of the CIRO responsibilities there for 4.5 years.

On top of that, he is also deeply familiar with PCI DSS, since he as a consultant helped a B2B cryptocurrency company Mercuryo to get a PCI license and prepare their infrastructure and documentation for quarterly audits.
