You are the true hero in the fight against cybercrime.

The worlds created by Marvel, DC Comics, J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien and many others offer heroes who ward off evil and protect worlds from destruction. When it comes to cybercrime, there are many unseen heroes working behind the scenes at Baylor and beyond, keeping networks and data secure. However, despite the best efforts of highly trained professionals cybercriminals know that everyday users of devices and software are the key to getting access to the information and systems they desire.

During October's National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and throughout the year, Baylor ITS finds innovative ways to remind our community of some basic ways to stay safe online. Peruse this year's set of helpful cybersecurity tips and always remember that you are the first line of defense against cybercriminals and the true heroes in the battle against the evils lurking online!

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 @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.
