We Are 2017 FISSEA Winners!

Unexpected Attachments

This colorful poster shows a Golden Retriever at the beach where he has just received an unexpected message. It’s tempting – the subject line offers free bones, but he’s aware that it could be a phisher’s trick.  Messages that are too good to be true can cause problems for his organization, so he decides not to open the attachment.

The 11 x 17-inch poster is designed to appeal to animal lovers, beach lovers, sunset lovers, and those who are tempted by mysterious messages in bottles or emails that present hard-to-resist offers.  It reminds us to be careful with attachments, especially those that we are not expecting.

The team responsible for this poster: K Rudolph, G. Mark Hardy, Niomi Rosenberg, Andrew Ellis, John Ippolito, Sam Carter.

You can order your own copy! The digital poster is available in our poster shop.

The winning motivational item – security-minded beverage stirs. These are intended to remind staff to log off before they go out for that refreshing coffee, tea, hot cocoa… or kayaking adventure.  The paddle-shaped stirs are crafted of maple and engraved with designs and messages that will stir the memories of those who may not always remember to log off.
