Much of this cost will be down to the manual effort required to make the modifications by IT staff and roll out patches to all installed instances of that software. Avoiding that effort reduces costs and leaves staff free for more productive activities. If programming staff are well trained, they are less likely to make errors in the first place, so the first action towards producing more secure code any organisation should take is a review of its staff training program me.
