Be #BearAware In and Out of...The Office!

Memes from the hit show The Office are hilarious, but falling victim to cybercrime is not. Throughout October, which is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Jim, Dwight, Pam, Michael, Darryl, Kevin, and other friends from The Office will remind us to be BearAware so that we can protect our personal information and the critical information resources of Baylor University.

During this year's National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, faculty and staff will be required to complete cybersecurity training. Beginning October 15, 2021, several cybersecurity training modules developed by the SANS Institute will be made available through Ignite to all Baylor employees. These required sessions will educate the Baylor community so that we will continue to be diligent when it comes to data security.

Review and follow these best practices to become more #BearAware, and see all of the Publicity Resources for our 2021 campaign.

BearAware is Baylor's cybersecurity awareness initiative. Throughout the year, Baylor ITS keeps our community BearAware of the latest information on security threats through BearAware cybersecurity updates, our @BaylorITS twitter account and the Baylor ITS Facebook page (look for the #BearAware in posts). When information security issues arise, BearAware alerts are distributed by email and through social media. The goal of our initiative is to keep the Baylor community informed about the latest cybersecurity threats so that both personal and university information resources remain secure.

Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart
