Very true. In the academic environment there are few schools (if there
are any) who actually have a course that deals with code security.
Because of that,this is something that you have to learn by yourself.
That's why participating in coding projects (open source) helps learning
about those stuff. That's at least from my own experience.

That's not the type of security "theory" I had on mind.
Its not just policy , its theory behind how things work whether
protocols or attack methods, code vulnerabilities ...
