I’d like to thank the Professional Photographers Associate of Northern Illinois for allowing me to speak to them this morning about Password Security and Backup Strategies for Photographers.

Due to a technical glitch (on my part), only a portion of the video from today’s talk will be available for viewing, but as soon as it’s ready, I’ll post it here on this site.

Below are links to many of the products and services mentioned during the discussion, if you have any questions, please feel free to Contact Me and I’ll try to find the answer for you!
