End User Lockdown: Dark Reading Caption Contest Winners

Phishing, cybersecurity training, biometrics and casual Fridays. And the winners are ...

Dark Reading reader Nick Walker (aka ntwalk) earns the top honors and a $25 Amazon gift card for his password cracking play on words in the caption, penned below.

When not penning cartoon captions, Nick, of Lowell, Arkansas, works as a security analyst at J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc.

Coming in as a close second to win a $10 Amazon gift card is Mark Bartel, a software engineer from The Dalles, Oregon, with the clever, “I told you we needed to pass that cybersecurity training class."

Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest and to our loyal readers who cheered the contestants on. Also a shout out to our judges, John Klossner and the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters, Kelly Sheridan, Curtis Franklin, Jim Donahue, Gayle Kesten, and yours truly.

If you haven't had a chance to read all the entries, be sure to check them out today.
