Subject: [WEB SECURITY] comparing information security to
	other industries

who are you? from which sector? country?
as published and reported,
there are actually six sigma systems even in IT - systems controlling
(chemical) manufacturing plant, (nuclear) power stations, oil tankers,
air-traffic control etc..., embedded systems in aircraft, cars etc..
          but I doubt whether the mass of product from the "software houses"
falls in this class.

|So we have been dealing with information security from last 20
|years and still the world is at large lost. We still see banks
|vulnerable to trivial XSS attacks and software broken by
|buffer overflows. How do we compare to other industries like
|construction, engineering, finance? What I am trying to figure
|out is how mature we are and how long will it take for to get stable?
