Peter Fotis Kapnistos: When partners of the United Nations and the U.S. Congress asked leading technology experts to estimate the standing of global computer security, the answer was unsatisfactory: There is none. No expert could guarantee 100% secrecy for online computing systems. In fact, keeping sensitive information on a computer system with 250 well-known ports and communications endpoint protocols might not be the most prudent thing to do like a cake left out in the rain. Where then, should governments hide their most sensitive information? Perhaps at the bottom of a pyramid tomb. But even then, the touchy information might get uncovered after a few thousand years of excavation.

There's no hiding.  'Sensitive' info should be on a piece of paper that you eat after reading.  (Preferably rice paper)
