We all have users that push the envelope, but what about those times when their behavior can get downright scary?
It’s tough to decide which behavior is the worst, so we thought we’d help you narrow it down to the scariest and most dangerous with a twist -- a March Bracket Challenge! Not only will the bracket help identify bad behavior, you’ll also get a chance to earn some cold hard $$$ (well, a $150 Amazon gift card).
Think about how your users’ behaviors impact your organization. As these bad behaviors, activity and actions go head-to-head in the bracket, it’s up to you to decide the worst one of all.
At the end of your bracket, you'll have identified the scariest behaviors and get your chance at an Amazon gift card! You’ll also get some great resources on how to deal with scary and harmful employee behaviors.
Your bracket must be submitted by Wednesday, March 29th, 2017. Winners will be selected randomly and will be notified by Thursday, March 30th. Winners have two days to accept their gift card before new names are selected.
Fill out the bracket to have a chance to earn a $150 Amazon gift card!
Two gift cards are available.
We've got an awesome bracket for you to fill out on the scariest things your users do, but you need to be on a larger device. Try a larger tablet or laptop to fill out the bracket and take your shot at some Amazon gift cards.

This disgruntled employee is your worst enemy. They take chances to secretly uploading your confidential info so they can hand it over to another employer or your competitor's waiting hands.
They want an easy-to-remember password, but your character requirements force them to be a little more creative, so they try 'P@ss1234'. There, that oughta keep the hackers out.
When employees ignore all the rules and regulations that are put in place to keep your data safe. This is one scenario where not monitoring employee activity can get you in trouble -- and be a very costly mistake.
Leaving a laptop in plain sight makes it easy prey for thieves. Once a laptop is gone all that information is compromised unless you have some sick at-rest encryption, bro.
Let me put my forecasting spreadsheets in my own Dropbox so I can work on them from home. Oh, what's my password again? Oh yeah, P-a-s-s-w-o-r-d-1-2-3-4...
Whether it's never changing a password or complaining about changing a password too often, employees will do whatever they can to make passwords less of a hassle -- even if it means opening up a gaping vulnerability in your company.
They just went to get a cup of coffee real quick, not realizing that's all the time it takes for someone to gain access to an unlocked workstation.
Making a weak password is bad but writing it down on a Post-It and sticking it to your monitor, is really, really bad.
It's all fun and games until hackers contact you at 3 a.m. letting you know they're holding your files ransom and will release them for the small sum of 20,000 bitcoins...
Download CompaneeFinanciels2017.xlsx? Looks legit, I should download it. Enable macros? Sure! NOT.
USB giveaways are huge, but how many of those flash drives can be trusted? Zero. Yes, that includes the really cool one with the laser pointer attached to it.
Even a badly misspelled phishing message will net employees who aren't paying attention. Handing over credentials has never been easier.
It seems people will click and install anything, unless it's a system update. Critical security patches are missed and your files are more vulnerable than ever.
Computers and their programs may belong to the company, but it doesn't make their access universal.
This one is trickier. An urgent request from "IT" can cause employees to fall in line and comply. Except that email isn't really from IT.
