Pretty Good Passwords: Cartoon Caption Contest WinnersPretty Good Passwords: Cartoon Caption Contest Winners
Sticky notes, multi-factor authentication, password reuse and Donald Trump. And the winner is...
June 16, 2016
Passwords are the bane of existence for security professionals and end-users alike. But in Dark Reading's latest caption contest, they were also great fodder for geeky humor -- including a reference to Donald Trump. Dark Reading community members submitted more than 90 entries, providing more than a few chuckles for the 1,000+ readers who kept tabs on the captions as they poured in.
And so, without further ado, the winning caption..
First-prize winner, Sukanya Chandrashekar (RheaAmeria), a technical writer at Aleph Tav Technologies, Chennai, India, takes home a $25 Amazon gift card and a much-deserved moment of fame in the final version of the cartoon by John Klossner, who helped judge the contest along with the Dark Reading editorial team: Tim Wilson, Kelly Jackson Higgins, Sara Peters, and yours truly.
We also awarded two honorable mentions (and $10 Amazon cards) to:
“It's OK...I'm using P.G.P. (Pretty Good Post-Its)”
And to clark1clark1 for:
"3M Corp original Multifactor solution."
"Could we start a secondary contest to guess what number Cap'n Stanganelli will make it up to?"
I'll leave that task, dear readers, to you!
