The same highly-connected world that enables collaboration, learning, social interaction, and creativity also enables more ominous activities: vulnerability exploits, identity theft, malware, phishing, keylogging, and more.

At Baylor, we work hard to prevent any such activities, but the truth is that you are your own best defense.

Being aware of the threats, practicing good security habits, and thoughtful, measured use of social media go a long way toward protecting your personal information. The following tips will help:

  • Use different, complex passwords or pass phrases for all your accounts
  • Use multi-factor authentication when possible
  • Listen, if you hear a little voice of hesitation before you click "send" or "post".
  • Follow @BearAware for up-to-date information about the latest security and privacy issues
