25% of employees use the same password for every account

Employees may be a company's greatest asset, but they also remain the greatest cybersecurity risk, according to a Monday report from OpenVPN.

Despite an increased focus on security training, 25% of the 500 US employees surveyed report that they use the same password for every account, the report found. Another 23% of employees said they frequently click on links before verifying that they lead to a legitimate, safe website.

Of the employees that use the same password for everything, a whopping 81% said they do not password protect their computer or phone at all, according to the report.
