Sure, but the "bus factor" is not just relating to getting hit by a
bus; it is the effect of losing someone by any means (health,
accident, murder or otherwise). It's about having a plan to ensure
that a lost person doesn't have other serious follow on problems ...
such as "nobody knows the encryption pass phrase or key to unlock
