As Emperor of Security, I hereby decree...

Scott Granneman of SecurityFocus has declared himself emperor of security and laid down some basic rules:

1. Training and licensing for all new computer users

2. Mandatory operating system multicultures

3. Governments must use open data formats

4. Fines for software companies shipping software that proves to be insecure

5. Organisations entrusted with personal data will be held accountable for compromising the security of that data

6. Mandatory disclosure of data loss and hacking

7. Mandatory anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall software

8. DRM cannot be used to deny fair use, fair dealing or first sale

That would be a good start.
