A new era has come Technologies are changing the world. What previously seemed to be impossible, today is already the reality. The time for changes in security of documents has come. It’s time to save our information.So,let us understand what project IDM (Ideal Data Memory) is all about .
A blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions. Constantly growing as ‘completed’ blocks (the most recent transactions) are recorded and added to it in chronological order, it allows market participants to keep track of digital currency transactions without central record keeping. Each node (a computer connected to the network) gets a copy of the blockchain, which is downloaded automatically.
IDM introduces the service that can boast the superior level of security which is way higher than the one offered by any of the similar providers on the market and exceeds all State standards regarding the secure data storage.
Despite the fact that almost all State services have the highest level of data protection, they also experience the leak of data
AIM OF IDM
IDM has set itself an aim to become a new integral part of the life of every individual. The importance of this innovation can be compared to the importance of electronic signature. It is a unique storage of personal information with the most profound level of security that was previously inaccessible to the general population.

Many cloud storage providers promise fast, reliable and convenient services. However, the things are a bit more complicated.The year 2013 was marked by a scandal involving the outdated SSL service certificate by Microsoft Azure which provided criminals with an opportunity to hack the Xbox Live system;The so-called Celebgate incident, which happened in 2015, when hackers stole intimate photos of some celebrities from the iCloud (Apple) cloud storage;The number of hacks inflicted on cloud services is growing every year at the rate around 50%;Approximately 70% of companies have at least one application running in a cloud;Lloyd’s of London and Cyence believe that a massive attack on cloud storage can cause losses in excess of $ 5 billion, and only 15-17% of the total amount will be covered by insurance;In 2017, the data storage of Equifax, the US leading consumer credit report agency, had been hacked resulting a personal data loss of 143 million customers. Consequently, the value of company’s stocks has plummeted by 13%;The absence of two-factor authentication resulted in a personal data theft of 80 million customers of Anthem, an American health insurance company.Countermeasures to emerging threats
The encryption of data by the user could be a viable method of countering cyber-attacks and potential data theft;
Another way is to select an additional option offered by cloud service, which provides uploaded data to be encrypted by the service;
The two-factor authentication (2FA) allows to increase the level of data access protection with minimum costs; 4. An anti-virus software which is a more conservative method of data protection.
The world-famous company UBER was subjected to a massive cyber attack, as a result, the data of 57 million drivers and customers had been stolen.The most disturbing thing was covering by the company the very fact of hacking and theft, and the payment to the perpetrators a ransom of $ 100 thousand dollars. The attack was interesting in itself because hackers got access to the company’s data through the GitHub service, where they hacked several accounts, downloaded data from Uber employees and with this data accessed a huge array of Uber data in the Amazon Web Services used by Uber for calculations.Several years earlier, Yahoo and Equifax were hacked, along with many other companies and private accounts.The need for the guaranteed security of stored documentsCurrently, there isn’t a single data storage on the market that can guarantee the absolute security of the documents that have special value and, at the same time, is accessible for the ordinary people
The consumers have the demand for secure storage of their personal and classified documents of particular importance
IDM introduces the service that can boast the superior level of security which is way higher than the one offered by any of the similar providers on the market and exceeds all State standards regarding the secure data storage
Despite the fact that almost all State services have the highest level of data protection, they also experience the leak of data.
Data loss in cloud storage
Despite the fact that this type of storage is called “cloud”, the data is stored in physical
terrestrial and underground locations, called data centres.
The actual storage devices are hard disks prone to various effects similar to those inherent
in modern HDDs, such as an appearance of bad sectors, errors caused by voltage drops or
physical damage to the disk surface, both due to improper operation or a design defect.
As a rule, all information is duplicated in backup copies according to a specific schedule.
However, this method does not fully guarantee the safety of your data. Also we must
consider the human factor.
Theft of data from cloud storage
Data is not always lost as a result of technical failures. Often there is a banal theft. The
criminals may steal information just for fun or with the purpose of honing their hacking
skills. Information can be stolen with a very specific purpose: to make money through
blackmailing or selling valuable data to interested parties.
Not long ago, the media was buzzing with the news regarding the theft of intimate photos
of celebrities from the cloud storage belonging to one of the main players on the mobile market.
