I agree. In software, you also take risks. Things that deeply affect your software can happen, which you cannot control or can do little about it.

For example, a vulnerability discovered in the platform where your software runs (e.g.: Meltdown, Spectre), or the server where your webapp runs gets hacked and your data gets compromised (which is similar to the situation where animals eat your crops).
