An essential step towards… what?

I just read an interesting press release about a new piece of legislation calling for the creation of a National Cybersecurity Advisor.

So… will this help prevent gold sellers and game account hacking?  Will it stop 419 scams and viagra spam?  No?  How does it help ME then, I ask you?

All joking aside, it seems like this is an essential step towards protecting us in the Brave New World.  I can’t help worrying though that it’ll be a step towards Big Brother.  Or maybe Skynet, or Operation Dark Storm Cloud.  OK, I grant those latter two aren’t terribly likely. 😀
