Memes are hilarious. Cyberattacks aren't.

For the past two years we have spread memes across the Baylor campus to connect with 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.

Flip through this year's set of memes above and remember to remain diligent as we work together to protect our personal and institutional information.  And, while you are here, visit our Phish Free blog and review some basic cybersecurity tips!

BearAware is Baylor's cybersecurity awareness initiative. Throughout the year, Baylor ITS keeps our community BearAware of the latest information security threats through BearAware cybersecurity updates, our @BearAware twitter account and the BearAware Facebook page. 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.
