Memes are hilarious. Cyberattacks aren't.

For the past two years we have spread memes across the Baylor campus as part of our annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month campaign to capture feelings we all resonate with when it comes to staying safe online. Whether it is absolute disbelief at a friend's online naïveté, our own experience of terror when we lose something because we didn't back up our files, or self-righteous indignation when we hear how someone's identity was stolen, we immediately experience the realities many people face here at Baylor and beyond when they don't stay BearAware.

Look for our fabulous memes throughout the month of October and remember to remain diligent as we work together to protect our personal and institutional information.  And, while you are here, peruse the following National CyberSecurity Awareness Month events, visit our Phish Free blog, and review basic cybersecurity tips!

BearAware is Baylor University's cybersecurity awareness initiative. Throughout the year, Information Technology Services keeps the Baylor community up to date on the latest information security threats through quarterly campus newsletters, our @BearAware twitter account and the BearAware Facebook page. When information security issues arise, BearAware alerts are distributed campus-wide 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.
