According to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report – “82% of breaches involved the Human Element, including Social Attacks, Errors and Misuse”. The weakest link in Cybersecurity has always been and remains to be Humans. There are so many reasons why Humans are imperfect, and this has caused gaps in Cybersecurity.

Cybercriminals continue to target humans based on their vulnerability and unpredictability. This is also the primary reason as to why humans are always highlighted to be the weakest link in cybersecurity. Mistakes are made accidentally and deliberately by humans.
