A Privatized Solution is Equally Viable, without Creeping Laws

There is no need for the government to provide this function.
This is an idea that could easily exist in the private sector.

In the face of what seems to be inevitable governmental expansions on it's programs, it's best to keep government out of this topic all-together.

The source of the problem is that government agencies and private companies are creating systems that are vulnerable.
Sensitive data should simply not be connected in any way to externally exposed networks.

Another danger is that of the general public getting used to the government routinely passing legislation associated with the internet, when it appears that legislators are not good at understanding the nature and technical details of the internet. They are not fit for making these type of decisions. So, even (initially) periphery internet legislation should be avoided.
