Article on information security

This article views the software insecurity problem from an economics perspective. Makes sense to me, except he totally ignores the other costs that come along with liability–lawyers, lost productivity, insurance costs. However, these costs seem reasonable. I have a friend who is a general contractor and builds houses. He was astonished to find that computer consultants don’t have to carry liability insurance. Perhaps it’s time for that.
