    Read Jair Ramos's blog about the different reasons you may not be able to access your org, such as an expired password, a degradation issue from Salesforce, expired licenses, but the most common issue is related to the SSO certificates (in case you are using it). Users could get an error like: “We can't log you in. Check for an invalid assertion in the SAML Assertion Validator”. This error might give you a clue that something is happening with your SSO configuration and needs to be checked by the Admin of the org. Don’t wait too much time to have your org up and running again.
