Yes, people often are the weakest link in security but that is the very reason you need systems designed to make stupid less of a risk. That of course has a cost in training and monitoring of behaviour, but a proper audit will show if those sort of risks are being managed well enough.

2FA is a good example as it helps avoid the need for the human to understand if the https link is in use and if the certificate is the correct one.
