"I don't claim to have the magic bullet to kill this problem, but I do believe it starts by making it financially painful, via fines, to an organization for getting owned, provided that it can be demonstrated that their security is a joke."

But this kind of regulation can only go as far as sovereign borders. And increasingly businesses are going trans-national, meaning they can play the shell game to get around regulators. We're reaching a point close to Gibson's Sprawl where transnational businesses can transcend national borders and basically become sovereign entities in their own right, at which point the rules get changed yet again.
