IU prof doubles in cybersecurity, stuffed animals

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University law professor Fred Cate isn’t just an expert on cybersecurity.

He’s also an animal lover.

As the director of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at Indiana University, Cate often attends meetings of international importance.

When he does, his Winnie the Pooh wristwatch is prone to slipping out from under his sleeve during high-tech intellectual talks.

Cate also has collected more than 1,000 stuffed animals.

The Herald Times reports that Cate doesn’t have room for pets at home, but he “parents” an elephant and a bear at the Indianapolis Zoo.
