By Ingram Leedy on March 5, 2020

While it might sound weird to lease your computer instead of buying it outright, the idea isn’t as far-fetched as you might think at first. In fact, many of those who read this are probably already doing it with their phones (assuming they have a typical cellular plan).

For example, one article by Smallbiztrends.com states that “1 in 99 emails is a phishing attack.” Meanwhile, data cited by Digital Information World states that, in 2017 alone, Kaspersky Labs’ “software alerted users to about possible phishing scams more than 246.23 million times.”

[Online Course] Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection

By Ingram Leedy on February 27, 2020

As time goes on, the technology we use to accomplish tasks becomes ever more advanced. For example, at the start of the millennium, the FCC defined internet speeds of 200 Kbps as “high-speed.” In 2018, the average internet speed in the USA, according to data cited by the NCTA, was 93.98 Mbps. Just for reference, 200 Kpbs is equal to 0.2 Mbps—meaning that the average internet speed in the U.S. today is around 469.9 times faster than so-called “high-speed” internet less than two decades prior.
