"For the Love" Entry
Linda says:  "Sec. 406 of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 states multi-factor logical access controls include 'Information that is known to the user, such as a password or personal identification number' but it's pretty vague on how it is known."

Roger has a suspicion hiring Linda does not lend to improved "cybersecurity in the United States through enhanced sharing of information about cybersecurity threats, and for other purposes."

(Note: This is not a contest entry, just for the love of the comic!)
