Introducing Alan CyBear, the Smokey of Cybersecurity
The cultural icon Smokey Bear, with his yellow hat and wildfire prevention tagline, has been familiar to Americans for decades. Likewise, McGruff the Crime Dog, who encouraged the public to “Take a bite out of crime.” These famous characters has helped encourage a culture of security. But what about a culture of cybersecurity?
Since cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, the UTSA Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS) has launched Alan CyBear™, a new mascot to promote a more secure nation through cybersecurity awareness, prevention and defensive efforts.
