(this post was supposed to go out a few days ago but we had some technical difficulties)
I saw an article today saying that Americans are wrong about the security of their personal computers. This did not surprise me. Computer security is complicated, there are a lot of technologies that have to be in place to protect against a lot of attack vectors and most people have better things to do with their time than become computer security experts.
What I would like see would be a poll of software development managers to see how right they are about the security of the software their teams are producing. They would probably be more wrong than the average American, but given that their job is to produce software for a living I feel like they ought to have a bit more responsibility for getting security right.
