One reason that airplanes are so safe is that crashes are investigated by government agencies; the results are published, and the lessons from one crash go into future airplane design, pilot training, and technology to prevent another. There's nothing like that in the computer world, which is one reason why we see the same failures over and over again. The authors suggests that we need a Major Cyberincident Investigations Board, which would be charged with performing&#x0097;and publishing&#x0097;detailed analyses of the causes of significant computer-related incidents.
