More Liability for Data Breaches
If there is an increase is the liability for damages resulting from data breaches companies would be more cicrumspect about data security. I realize getting legislation passed would be difficult and that there would be financial pain in the early days, but as President Kennedy said about going to the moon "We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things,[7]not because they are easy, but because they are hard;"

It is time to take on the challenge of truly improving data security and personal privacy protection.

Hypocrisy vs lack of understanding
The most amazing part of all of this, is that if this information had been encrypted, using standards that politicians have been attacking and privacy campaigners have been championing, this sort of information may never have come to light. 

The fact that the UK's Prime Minister is now calling his involvement a "private matter," shows that either these politicians don't understand what they're saying when they try to ban private communications and encryption, or that they just think privacy should apply to them.

Either way, they shouldn't be in positions of affecting policy related to it.
