Identity protects the weakest link in the business environment: people . Indeed, it is estimated that about 52% of security breaches are the result of human error (using passwords identical to those used when registering on certain websites, opening emails in which they are asked to log in) in a fraudulent form, using simple passwords, etc.), and thus, a human error, can lead to privileged access to internal corporate applications and the theft and / or destruction of the organization's confidential information. Therefore, and although it is convenient to provide training to users adjusted to the risks that the organization runs; identity must be properly protected.
