What about surveying vehicle engineers on how they research and reuse other's mistakes? One thing I've noticed is that many applications are being developed by programmers who end up reinventing the wheel instead of following best practices, patterns, etc. The current client I am working for (large financial institution) has a difficult time with the concept of researching patterns, or having architects review systems to catch common patterns, etc.
If developers stopped reinventing the wheel, did research, reviewed and followed best practices and patterns, do you think that this would inherantly make security cheaper and easier to implement?
