Design security into your code. Don’t just hope for the best
If someone constructed a suspension bridge by guessing the steel cabling sizes required and then loading the deck to see whether it collapsed, you would be unlikely to suggest that he was a great civil engineer. And if a lift manufacturer sized their motors by trying them to see whether they caught fire, you wouldn’t expect their electrical engineers to win many awards.
