Internet server: Availability as failure of availability affects a large number of people, the reputation of the supplier and hence its current and future income. 

A computer-controlled scalpel: Safety as safety-related failures can cause harm to the patient. 

A directional control system: Reliability as mission failure could result from failure of the system to perform to specification. 

An personal finance management system: Security because of potential losses to users.
