This is an interesting topic; companies often need information that they are not legally allowed to know. For example, some hospitals are not allowed to mark patients as HIV positive (because it stigmatizes patients); staff members create codes or other ways so they can take the necessary steps to protect themselves. This idea of information being lifted clear of the data networks is also explored at length in Shockwave Rider, by John Brunner.

If information is really the currency of the future, why not keep a copy of your data stashed in an offshore web host, one that is not recorded. In the event that you lose your company and its information, you could resurrect it from your other host.
