1 ©IXcellerate 2014 Where’s the Data? Keeping up with regulatory trends in the fast-growing Russian Internet market Rely on IXcellerate packages to help simplify your process

2 It’s not just about compliance ©2014 Russia Data Laws New data laws in Russia are encouraging companies to house sensitive customer information within the Russian Federation. It’s not just compliance however – many enterprises are now moving this data to Moscow or demanding their partners/suppliers confirm the data location.

3 ©20143 Russia has recently amended legislation on data retention to force some companies to store data about its citizens within the country. Bill number 553424-6, which translation engines tell us is titled “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation (to clarify the processing of personal data in information and telecommunications networks)” specifies that “when collecting personal data, including information and telecommunications network, the Internet, the operator must ensure that record, systematization, accumulation, storage, updated, modified, removing the personal data of citizens of the Russian Federation, in databases, of information located in the territory of the Russian Federation”. The result of the bill looks to be that social networks, retailers and similar organisations will need to place servers within Russia if they want to do business with Russians. But as Russia Today (A state-owned English language TV service) points out, Russian businesses such as airlines that rely on hosted software aren't likely to appreciate the law. Nor, one imagines, are software-as-a- service providers who aren't always in a rush to create new data centres. The Bill passed the Duma, the lower house of Russia's Parliament, last week. Currently it doesn't look like Russia's Upper House (the next legislative step) will prove an obstacle to its passage into law. The law comes into force on September 1st, 2016, giving Russian companies – and those in other nations that target the Russian market – plenty of time to adjust and find datacentre partners. Complying with the law may not require enormous effort. As a comparison is the Australian state of New South Wales’ Department of Education's adoption of Gmail for nearly a million students. The Department insisted that students' email be stored on Australian soil, a request Google happily accommodated. A local telco – Telstra – stepped in to do the hosting and Gmail reportedly didn't need much tweaking to work under these arrangements. One last possibility: might the law leave a loophole that allows a copy of data to reside in Russia? If that's possible, lots of synchronisation might do the trick. In any case B to B companies looking to secure contracts with large Russian enterprises will surely face the question “where will our data live?”, a situation we are seeing already in post NSA Germany.

4 Russia Data Laws ©2013 How do I comply? How do I select the right partner? Do they really understand my business? Can I work with them? Where’s our Data?

5 ©2014 How do I comply? The big question, but keeping within the spirit of the law is a good start. Hosting Russian customer data in Russia means creating a physical (server) presence in a datacentre, or working with a cloud provider who can prove the same. We can offer direct colocation or help find a suitable cloud partner from within our Moscow One ecosystem. The right partner? It’s best to talk to someone who has some experience. IXcellerate’s management has over 15 years of operations history in datacentre operations across Europe Can they help with integration partners? Finding partners in Russia can be difficult due to language and culture barriers. We work with a number of partners selected for the reactivity and professionalism and can put ypu in touch or provide a whole package. Do they really understand my business? At IXcellerate we take special care to spend the time necessary to research and understand our customers’ businesses so that we can serve them efficiently and responsively. We are sorry if we ask many questions but they help us tailor our service directly to your needs. Russia Data Laws
