Security

I am not sure what the security angle is here for not hiring Chinese and Russians. Looking at their website they are similar to Github and thus not writing code for the client. Presumably the customer's code is encrypted so prying eyes cannot get it without permission. Customer information accessible to staff seems to be primarily billing information, again information that should be encrypted with proper permissions set.
