The Designer’s IT Guy
No matter what kind of computer you use, the most valuable thing in it is your data. Not just project files that your clients have paid for (or not paid for yet), but confidential, financial information about you, or that your clients have entrusted to you.

Your system administrator and IT department should be working hard to keep that data safe and secure, but what if you work for yourself? Or is yours the only Mac in a company full of PCs, and the Windows administrator just shrugs when you ask him a question?

Backups, the Cloud, security and encryption, and the difference between paranoia and common sense. Just a few of the tech topics that Charles will talk about at this month's Homegrown event. Bring a laptop for some hands-on demos, and you might take home some cool tech schwag that Charles is giving away.

Join us June 10 for our Homegrown on Tech Talk for Graphic Designers with Charles Mangin of Option 8. The Designers IT Guy
