Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] We need an environment where those who manage and use ICT have the incentives to use high-quality security. Public and private.
Trond Johannessen
Incentives are already there: you pointed out the costs of breaches. We have from the birth of desktop IT been confronted with weak (by design?) desktop security (Windows) and the complementary "security" products, which cannot possibly be rated adequate, given the speech here. The "incentive" must not be buying a lock that is safe by decree, and so many people agree on the specs that you know it is broken security by acclamation. So what does the word "incentive" mean. I think the problem is architecture, and that incentives to protect are always present, while incompetence, lack of awareness, and false security is responsible for its fair share of issues.
