Even more than this, it's a skillset and mindset issue.  Many  
organizations don't know enough about how the underlying technologies  
work to understand that they need to incorporate these costs and  
allocate these resources as part of the project spend, nor do they  
think to ask around (or even use the Search Engine of Their Choice) to  
find out about the 'unknown unknowns'.

To mount a successful defense, one must learn to think like an  
attacker.  This seems to be a relatively rare attitude, unfortunately.
