    When I read the article that human error was the source of most breaches and data loss in 2014, it was not a surprise. You can pick any study about computer-related crimes and data breaches in the last few years and you will find that humans are the primary attack vector for most significant breaches, and the criminals intend to initiate human error. In order to prevent this error, you have to understand what causes humans to make errors.

    For the most part, humans are not generally stupid. Human error is the cause of problems in just about any field. Think about aviation. Pilot error is the source of many problems. Factory injuries are almost always caused by human error. The computer field is not alone in significant damages caused by human errors. For some reason though, the information technology field refuses to acknowledge that there should be sufficient efforts put into reducing human error.
