This 10TB cloud storage is cheaper than buying a Starbucks but it ends today – TechRadar

IDrive was a little late in our Cyber Monday cloud storage deal lineup but it delivered the best deal out there, by far, bar none. How they did it, we dont know but they managed to offer 10TB of cloud storage, exclusive to our readers - thats twice the usual 5TB they offer outside of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Note that you will get 10TB for as long as you will remain an iDrive customer. There's no promotional period or catch and you can buy more than one.

The headline price is $3.98, which is a little over $0.01 a day, which is incredibly cheap for cloud storage that includes data transfer to and from the service (so-called ingress).

This exclusive offer - which ends on Friday December 3rd at 23:59 - is only valid for the first year. At the end of the first year, youll have to fork out $79.50, which is a lot but far less than what others are charging.

You still get all the premium features - that made iDrive our number one cloud storage provider - with no strings attached. That includes multi-device backup, 256-bit AES encryption for enhanced security and privacy, up to 30 file versions for historical restorations and the ability to ship physical hard drives for faster backup or restore of data.

How much do others charge? Google charges a staggering $540 for 10TB per year, while Microsoft doesn't offer such an option on its Onedrive/Microsoft 365 subscription.

Unlike others, this is not a Glacier-type cold storage cloud backup. You will be able to retrieve your files immediately. Some rivals require you to wait up to 12 hours in order to retrieve your files, which can be a significant issue for some.

Crypto Promoter Charged With Scamming Investors Out of Millions | Chief Investment Officer – Chief Investment Officer

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged a California-based cryptocurrency promoter with conducting two unregistered and fraudulent securities offerings that promised astronomical rates of return through purported trading and advertising arbitrage.

According to the SECs complaint, Ryan Ginster, 34, raised $3.6 million in Bitcoin from the offerings through online platforms MyMicroProfits.com and Social Profimatic and allegedly lied to investors in both offerings about how their funds would be used.

The SEC further accused Ginsterwho also went by the alias Ryan Oakleyof misappropriating at least $1 million of the funds he raised to pay for personal expenses, such as tax payments, mortgage payments, a luxury vehicle, and almost $200,000 in various credit card bills.

Ginster allegedly engaged in a fraudulent scheme raising millions in cryptocurrency using online investment programs and then converted the cryptocurrency for his own benefit, Michele Wein Layne, regional director of the SECs Los Angeles regional office, said in a statement. Individuals who hide behind the anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions to defraud investors should expect that the SEC will trace their illegal activity and hold them accountable for their actions.

In the Social Profimatic offering, Ginster allegedly raised approximately $840,000 in Bitcoin by promising on both the platforms website and in YouTube videos returns of 8% a day, which, according to the SEC, corresponds to an annual rate of return of nearly 1,600,000,000,000%.

The complaint said the Social Profimatic website claimed that investors choose how much you wish to deposit with us & well pay you 8% every day. Our system will divide your revenue share payments up by the hour so you receive INSTANT and AUTOMATIC payments each hour. After you have your deposit made, we start creating & fulfilling social media marketing orders behind the scenes day & night on your behalf!

However, the SEC alleges that once investors funds were received, Ginster transferred the money to at least five digital asset wallets under his control and converted it to fiat currency to pay his personal expenses. The regulator said there was no indication Ginster ever attempted to generate returns through social media marketing orders as promised.

Under the MyMicroProfits.com offering, Ginster raised nearly $2.8 million in Bitcoin on promised returns of 0.13% per hour, or 3.12% per day. By the SECs calculations, that would mean a $10 investment be worth almost $45,000 after just nine months. Ginster claimed he would do this by investing in micro profit opportunities such as transaction processing fees, cloud hosting, cryptocurrency trading, and advertising arbitrage. As with the previous offering, the SEC said there was no evidence Ginster ever attempted to generate returns through transaction processing fees, cloud hosting, cryptocurrency trading, and advertising arbitrage.

The complaint also alleges that despite promises by both platforms that investors returns could be easily withdrawn, investors were not able to withdraw their funds.

The SEC is seeking permanent injunctions, disgorgement with prejudgment interest, and civil penalties against Ginster.

Top trends in tech transformation – Lexology

In a recent interview with the New Zealand Herald, Datacoms CEO, Greg Davidson, identified a significant lift in the volume of technology projects in the past year, with many organisations wary of their level of tech debt. Its the biggest upswing in demand for advice about moving to modern platforms that I can remember, he said.

We have also noticed this acceleration to the cloud and a clear increase in the volume of technology contracts being negotiated. This post explores some of the key trends were seeing during this tech transaction boom.

1)Implementation Proclamation

Modern software deals generally involve less bespoke development and on premise hosting than in traditional enterprise software. SaaS (software-as-a-service)providers tend to emphasise configuration (i.e. tweaking their pre-existing solution within defined parameters) over customisation (bespoke development to address specific customer requirements). This means the parties can sometimes overlook the importance of the implementation phase of these projects: were just rolling out a standardised product, how hard can it be? However, implementing software at an enterprise level almost always involves some level of complexity, whether due to integration with the customers technology stack, transfer of existing data to a new platform, the organisational process changes required, or a host of other reasons.

Contracting parties need to consider these potential risks and ensure that the agreement deals clearly and comprehensively with the implementation phase. This is particularly important in non-refundable licence deals, which kick in from day one without an ability to pull out if the implementation fails. To de-risk this element of the transaction, many deals include a separate design or discovery phase, giving the provider a chance to scope whats required in detail and report to the client on its intended approach before the implementation begins.

2)A Bit Too Agile?

The benefits of agile methodology for technology projects are now widely acknowledged. Although initially designed for internal software development projects, agile is now regularly deployed in tech implementations where both provider and customer teams are involved. While there are some clear benefits to this in terms of the ability to iterate, check in regularly and drive more cohesion between teams, there are also some challenges from a contractual perspective. Agile projects generally take a more open-ended approach, prioritising flexibility over certainty in terms of specifications, timeframes and deliverables. The result is that implementation projects using an agile methodology are often light on detail in these areas, even though the end product and existing software solution is largely known at the outset. The parties to these contracts need to ask themselves whether the agile contract provides an adequate roadmap for delivery of the solution.

We have found that a hybrid approach is often a valid answer preserving core agile project management processes while being more specific around what will be delivered, at what cost, and in what timeframe.

3)Once More Unto the Breach

Data breaches are fast becoming the number one risk for organisations across the globe, so the need to deal properly with this risk is fast becoming the major priority in technology contracts. There are many complexities to address: How is a data breach defined? Where is the demarcation of responsibility for data (at rest and in transit) between the customer and provider? What is the role of third party hosting providers and who takes responsibility if they cause a breach? Who has the role of controller and processor for data protection law purposes and how will this affect the allocation of responsibilities between the parties? Liability after the fact is one thing, but just as important is defining how the parties will co-operate in the heat of the moment to discover, notify, mitigate and resolve an incident.

4)Data Without Borders

The dominance of SaaS platforms and cloud-based infrastructure in todays technology stacks has led to a big increase in cross-border data flows. This is coupled with a number of significant recent developments in the law governing international data transfers, both here and overseas. Further afield, the Schrems II decision last year invalidated the Privacy Shield mechanism previously used as the legal basis for sending data between Europe and the US. More recently, the European Commission has released a new set of Standard Contractual Clauses that must be used in most circumstances where theres a transfer of data from the EU to any outside country not deemed adequate by the Europeans (i.e. most of them). In New Zealand (which helpfully does have adequacy for now), the Privacy Act 2020 recently imposed a new regime (including optional model contract clauses) for disclosure of personal data outside New Zealand although transfers to cloud hosting providers and others processing data purely on someone elses behalf are not caught. All this means a thorough assessment of the data flows involved, and the legal obligations that apply, is a key component of most tech deals.

5)Indemnities on the Increase

Traditionally, a customer in a software licence could be comfortable it had relatively few contractual obligations to worry about: pay the fees, stay within the licence scope and dont breach confidentiality or IP. However, many technology providers are now providing one to many solutions to a large volume of customers with a range of diverse needs. This, along with the ever-increasing complexity of data use/flows and the global regulatory environment, means providers often have legitimate reasons for looking more closely at the balance of risk. With this in mind, technology providers are increasingly asking customers to provide wide indemnities in relation to the customers particular use of their products often to address data protection concerns, but in many cases wider regulatory and third party risk. These indemnities are often broadly drafted, sometimes making the customer liable for almost everything bar the providers negligence. Whatever the reasonableness of specific clauses, its important for both parties to step back and think about the specific risk profile of each deal. Standard templates are seldom sufficient to cover all bases in todays market.

Let’s Talk About IT Ep. 23 The Transformation of the DOD in the Cloud – FedScoop

The Department of Defense is looking to the cloud as a key to enabling mission success and continued superiority in the digital age.

And central to the DODs push to the cloud is the Defense Information Systems Agencys Hosting and Compute Center (HaCC). Formerly known as the Cloud Computing Program Office, the HaCC leads the development of some of the DODs most prominent cloud programs, including the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC) cloud program.

On a new episode of FedScoops Lets Talk About IT, Sharon Woods, director of the HaCC at DISA, explains the nuance of the restructured office, the work its doing around the JWCC and why cloud is such a critical capability for the U.S. military to develop in response to growing threats from great power competitors like China and Russia.

Cloud is a foundational component, almost a prerequisite, for the Department of Defense to do things with its data quickly, and analyze it in a way that achieves machine learning and AI, Woods says on the podcast. These things are just really profound, and what youre able to interpret from the data and then for the department to do things with that data thats really, really critical.

She continues: I mean, peoples lives are at stake. This is about national defense, and we are putting people out there in harms way and we need to be able to bring them back home. And so we have to get and capitalize on our data as much as possible and take as modern of technology as we can cloud in this case and get as much out of it as possible.

Verizons David Reaves also joins the podcast to help listeners get a better sense of the digital transformation underway at the DOD.

When you think about the DOD specifically, and the military, what theyre really looking for are modern digital capabilities and processes, Reaves says. And they really want to ensure that theyre collaborative, integrated, digital environments that guide, orchestrate and deliver the means for each individual across their enterprise to access data, functions and elements needed to do his or her job in a purely digital manner.
