Key Points To Remember
Securing personal computers is not easy, especially for the non-technical end user.
Non-technical end users won't take the trouble required to secure their PCs unless they're compelled to do so.
If enforced, a federal law can compel users to employ "best practices."
The best way to ensure enforcement is to let the users enforce it by suing problem users in local courts, as in the junk fax law.
The goal of such a law is to force end users to use at least a minimal level of "best practice" efforts to secure their computers.
Such a law must allow "best practices" and "no known defense" as affirmative defenses and "first offense" to mitigate penalties.
