2017, from 7pm to 8pm, in Kelly Square’s Grayson Hall, 113 S. Travis Street, in downtown Sherman. Admission to the event is free with complimentary snacks and beverages provided courtesy of the Sherman Rotary Club. Shawn Kirby of the Herald-Democrat will moderate the event.
Discussion experts include Sergeant D.M. Hampton, Public Information Officer of the Sherman Police Department, Thomas Carter, Network and Operations Manager, Information Technology Department at Austin College, and Charles Curtis, Executive Director of the Information Technology Department at Austin College.
“We don’t think twice about locking a door to protect our real property,” noted museum directorDan Steelman, “but our possessions go far beyondjust real property. We have digital property as well. The sad fact is we live in a world where cyber-crime is becoming more troublesome than ever before. Whether you are an individual, a business, or a government, it doesn’t matter – cyber-crime is a threat. We are going to look at the topic and discuss ways we can protect ourselves.”
“Urban Dialog: Science After Dark” is a joint production of The Sherman Museum, Austin College, and the Sherman Rotary Club. The series is scheduled for the first Tuesday of every month from 7pm to 8pm. Discussions are held in Grayson Hall and cover a variety of timely topics from the fields of science and history.
