Misplaced analysis
I think this was a misplaced view into the issues facing enterprise security. 

This onus should be placed on the rest of the company - period. This is 2017 and we should never hear the phrase "We gave them training but they didn't understand it" anymore. I was at an all hands meeting with the CEO of a large financial last year with around 4,000 people. When he started talking about the security group he went off for 5 minutes to remind everyone that their job is Risk Management first and everything else second. Building that new cutting edge app is fantastic - until it exposes the entire company to ransomware.

A few simple topics to discuss instead of improper SOC standards would be:
  • Secure coding - Dev through Production
  • Secure hardware implementation
  • Secure remote and cloud access
  • Top down SLT mandated security
  • Stop babying end users and hold them responsible

 All of these can be done while still building out continuous development efforts and achieving growth. But companies don't do it.

 Most of the security issues companies face today are known and should have already been prevented/blocked through normal, everyday efforts but they perceive those efforts as hindrances because they don't think end users can handle them or they don't have personnel who understand them.

 The standard contract for the public(CC, car purchase, etc.) must be written in a 7 grade or lower reading level otherwise it can be legally considered confusing.

 I disagree that the problem is the security folks or the methodologies they are using.
