the US does not have a national privacy management standard, per se, and certainly there is no uniform breach notification law. This is really surprising for me.

Web
Modern consumers need more confidence in how their identities are used and managed on the Web That makes sense, web was the main source posing risks to privacy.

identities
The fact that our identities can be misused makes them a potential liability, as well, creating the legal basis for harm, neglect, and damages. Agree with this. Personal data radioactive, you can not dump it anywhere you want.

Law?
Do we need another law? If everybody plays within the law things would not be this messy.

Victim Shaming
Maybe it's time that we return to criminalizing the criminal instead of the victim.   We parade the victims of targeted and sophisticated breach vectors, by professional actors, in front of the public court of opinion, and post their company profiles all over the "wall of shame."    And then we make additional laws, to further punish the victims of crime, while ignoring the hackers.   Is it because it's easier?   Easier to go after the victim and blame them for what they could have/should have/might have done differently.   

I have no intention of downplaying the severity of a public sector breach.  It's a big stinking deal.  But I am not okay with the complete lack of any outcry in going after the bad actors who are perpetuating and effecting these crimes against the public.    Yes, we need to do more to protect the data and privacy.  But we need to make the main thing the main thing.  Hacking is already illiegal.   Let's go after that first.
