Threat Landscape: Dark Reading Caption Contest Winners

Insider threats -- desktop attacks, security awareness, caffeine -- all worthy contenders in our cartoon caption competition. And the winners are ...

There was an abundance of geeky humor and clever puns on display — yet again —  among the 90 entries to Dark Reading's latest cartoon caption contest. The hysterical submissions kept our editorial team smiling for days. Here are the results:

First prize, a $25 Amazon gift card, goes to REISEN1955, also known as Robert Eisenhardt, a forensic investigator with Fiserv, Alpharetta, GA, for his incognito browsing-themed caption penned below by cartoonist John Klossner.

Second prize — a $10 Amazon gift card — to GWAIN, for "Under here. I got an email saying my desktop was compromised." 

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, Curt 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
