Security and privacy is our DNA

Meo is built with a Privacy and Ownership by Design principles from the ground up, in order to secure sensitive customer data and ensure data ownership.
The procedures

We're committed to security

Our dedicated team diligently monitors all security aspects to ensure your data remains in safe hands

ISO27001 certification

ISO27001 is the international standard that lays out the specifications for implementing an information security management system (ISMS).

You are in control

Our system has been designed with you in control. Your data is yours, and yours only. Only you can give other people (or companies) access to see it. You can also easily revoke such access.

Secure storage

You have your own online data vault where all your data is stored using military-grade encryption (“aes-256-cbc”). Your data is safe from others.

Secure transmission

All your data is encrypted according to the highest standards (TLS v1.2+) when transmitted to and from our platform.


Only you, and those you have explicitly given access to, can access your data. No one else can, not even Meo.


We use blockchain technology to manage data access in an innovative way where it cannot be disputed who has given (or withdrawn) access to whom to see certain user data. We have a patent pending on this innovation.

Secure hosting

We host our platform on DigitalOcean, the third largest cloud platform in the world. DigitalOcean is ISO27001:2013 and PCI-DSS certified, and SOC 1 type II and SOC 2 type II attested.

Security audits

We do regular security audits with credible and independent security experts to ensure that our platform stays hardened and secure.

24/7 watchdog

We log all access to our platform, and we monitor that services are up and running.


All data is backed up regularly and transported offsite, so even if an earthquake or flood hits our servers then your data won’t be lost.

No single point of failure

All services and data are fully mirrored, so even if a server or database breaks down then another stands ready to immediately take over.

Case study

An easy integrative platform

Meo offers an easy-to-integrate platform, streamlining compliance processes for businesses with robust security features.

“Meo integrated perfectly with our existing systems”

KommuneKredit’s goal is to offer leasing and loans to Danish municipalities, regions and joint municipal companies. Previously, only the leasing part required identification from the owners, but it has also become a requirement for the loans. Therefore, KommuneKredit had to find a system to handle the safe-keeping of personal information.

“It is a significant task to store and manage personal data in the correct manner. Our goal was to outsource the safe-keeping of data because we believe in “best-of-breed”, meaning that we all do what we are best at. Therefore, we have not for one second considered developing a solution on our own”, says Christian Jeppesen, customer director and AML manager, who was responsible for finding the best, suitable platform for KommuneKredit.

When you deal with companies, it is simple to identify who the CEO is and who owns the company. But it is different in a municipality - because who is the ultimate beneficial owner, whose identity needs to be verified?

Today, the definition states that the mayor and the municipality director must be considered the municipality’s ultimate beneficial owners. Therefore KommuneKredit keeps the sensitive data of all Danish mayors and municipality directors under lock and key on the Newbanking Identity platform. Only a few designated employees of KommuneKredit have access to this information.

Difficult to develop on our own

“If we had to develop a platform, we would need a lot of governance to determine who should gain access and under which conditions. Aside from the fact that the actual development of the platform would be very complex, it would also involve far too much administrative work with too many unknown factors”, says Christian Jeppesen and continues:

“Today, everything is automated in Meo, where we carry out spot checks on all identity documentation in the system. The platform is easy to work with, and every time we are in dialogue with the Meo founders, they have proved to have an extensive knowledge regarding KYC and GDPR procedures, which gives us a high sense of security.”

Integration with our customer management system

For KommuneKredit, however, a few other factors came into play in choosing a platform to manage their KYC and GDPR compliance. They needed to integrate the KYC system directly with their current customer management system. By integrating Meo with KommuneKredit’s customer management system, it becomes easy for the employees to email their customers, for example, when they must update their identification documents.

Moreover, KommuneKredit was facing a replacement of their current CSR system with a new one, and thus, it was essential to find an easy integrative platform.

“The entire process of implementing Meo in the daily routines has been very agile, and Meo has been very responsive to help to integrate with our customer management system. They are super skilled at integrating the platform with the other systems we use, which is pivotal. The platform works impeccably and has high operational stability. By all means, we have acquired a great solution that meets the full range of our needs”, says Christian Jeppesen.
