French Administration In Fringe of Disconnection

Fabrice Epelboin, Editor of the ReadWriteWebFrance blog reports today that 40 French administration websites would have been hacked this week-end with access to sensitive documents.

France is country of law, ideal and justice.
The new regulations, resulting of the three strikes law and the HADOPI have created an obligation of securing networks. The non-compliance results to a fine of 1500 Euros which is probably a reasonable amount for ministerial budgets.
What about the obligation of keeping your network secured to escape disconnection?
Should the administration show the good example and share their tips to how they made it.
