With a steady stream of reports about new cyber attacks and the vulnerabilities they exploit, it is easy to conclude that the overall state of cybersecurity is a mess. The developers of other engineered systems-such as bridges-seem to have evolved methods of design that keep their products safe and reliable. Why hasn’t this relative stability happened for networked computers? By examining a series of threats faced by computer systems engineers, and comparing them with those confronting bridge engineers, we can show significant differences that help explain why cybersecurity is more complex. But there are signs of hope for much better cybersecurity.
