Easiest thing to do would probably be to zip them all up and encrypt that zip file with a strong password.

Define properly? Yes, it'll be reasonably secure and yes you'll still be able to access them.

But yes, if you gave it to a government organisation they'd most likely crack it open in minutes. Then again, if that's the level of security you're after then you've got some serious work to do!
