Security is not a goal in itself - it's there to help something other to 
function. I am afraid you could not afford to do what you described - 
most security measures should be cost-effective or you end up paying 
much more for your infrastructure than others and that needs to be 
justified by very high and probable losses... meaning you have to run 
some very risky but high-profit organization for that, and thnesea are 
hard to find or hard to morally support.
