54% of respondents to a Ponemon Institute study that involved more than 1,000 IT professionals said negligent employees were the root cause of a data breach.
The study found that strong passwords and biometrics continue to be an essential part of security defense. However, 59% of respondents say they do not have visibility into their employees’ password practices, such as the use of unique or strong passwords and secure password sharing. Safe password policies are also not strictly enforced by companies.
