Rick, the Risky Rabbit

Rick Insecurely Shares Confidential Payroll PII

Rick, the Risky Rabbit

Rabbits have been called rascally on many occasions, and that is certainly an adjective that could be attributed to Rick on a regular basis. He enjoys chewing the greens with his colleagues and has been known as a risk taker throughout his career—just not in the right ways. He frequently exposes sensitive content when sending and sharing it digitally by scampering around corners and failing to follow corporate practices. Risk isn’t something Rick worries about until it arrives at the entrance to his hole and the warning lights are flashing bright red.

Knute, the Noncompliance Numbat

Knute drives his security, compliance, and privacy teams batty by sticking his nose into holes where it doesn’t belong. He spurns authority, marching to his own drum, and is averse to following rules and regulations and demonstrating compliance. Knute gets himself and his company into a bind frequently by failing to comply with standards and regulations and uses so many tools and processes that it is virtually impossible to track and control the metadata they generate. Knute is dumbfounded when his noncompliance becomes a problem—whether through fines, penalties, detrimental brand impact, or just sheer embarrassment.

Mac, the Malicious Macaw

If you have a genuine talk with Mac, you probably won’t get something in return that you want to hear. He has a malicious streak and enjoys wreaking havoc when the opportunity arises. His loyalty is to himself and not his company, and he treats all information as if it belonged to him and not his company. Sometimes, Mac simply sends or shares sensitive company information with his own personal email and files. In other instances, he bypasses systems and controls to send or share confidential information with partners and competitors. Lack of security and compliance governance often makes it easy for Mac to get away with his malicious acts.

Stu, the Security Squirrel

Stu is fastidious not only when it comes to hoarding and securing acorns but when it comes to securing company data—both in transit and at rest. He constantly scampers around to protect his company’s data from accidental and intentional breaches. Stu often turns “purple” when dealing with employees like Risky Rick, Noncompliance Knute, and Malicious Mac, who create significant problems due to their carelessness, noncompliance, and maliciousness.

Calvin, the Compliance Cow

Calvin likes to say that there is no “udder” way to protect data than with comprehensive governance tracking and controls. All sensitive content is under his constant gaze. He’s always on the lookout for instances of noncompliance and corrals violators into compliance training. He uses audits to pinpoint departments and individuals grazing outside the parameters of compliance and will not be “cowed” by the intentional and nonintentional noncompliance actions of Risky Rick, Noncompliance Knute, and Malicious Mac.

Peggy, the Privacy Pig

Peggy is known to get her snout out of joint when someone fails to demonstrate the right governance when sending, sharing, receiving, and storing private content. Keeping her company clean by maintaining privacy of confidential information at rest and in motion is top priority for Peggy. When Risky Rick, Noncompliance Knute, and Malicious Mac take a roll in the mud and expose private data, Peggy makes a big oink about it.
