The battle to protect sensitive data, especially Personally Identifiable Information (PII), is the driver for many security programs around the world.

It's a battle that is too easy to lose.


We're hiding, come find us.
Just waiting to cause fuss.
S-S-Ns and birth dates,
Card numbers and staff fates.
We're sitting in email.
"Sent cleartext!" you will wail.
Computers in shadows
Like minefields in shallows.
The federal and state govs
Will take off the kid gloves
When you share that you've lost us;
Into trash bins you've tossed us.

The backups went missing.
The users, caught phishing.

All your data ain't secret:
On Pastebin and Reddit.
All your data wants freedom.
Go join them! Can't beat them!
