Confidentiality & data protection

Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of our work. We protect the privacy of our customer and secure personal data through five key components:

  • Website security: the data entered by our customers on our websites is encrypted using SSL 128 bit certificate encryption.
  • Our IT infrastructure at our offices is secured at the highest level (in line with bank standards), in order to prevent any intrusion.
  • Technical controls are imposed to prevent the printing or exporting of our customer database.
  • SFM uses end-to-end encryption of corporate email by digitally signing messages with email certificates so that senders and recipients of email can verify that the content they are sharing is legitimate and trusted
  • While confidentiality is paramount, complying with the law is above all. SFM will be bound to comply with any legal obligation, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process to obtain clients identities. Such occurrence is however very rare as SFM conducts strict due diligence requirements on every client and takes every possible precautions to identify cases of abuses.
