If the data are so sensible, do notplace the machine in a shared
location.

One could reboot in single mode, or just stop the machine and remove
the hard disk to analyze it at his own pace.

Single user password tends to give a false sense of security, if one
has physical access to the machine, consider he has open access to the
data stored on the machine.
