It's obvious that holding your own data will often be more of a liability than farming it out.  Want to avoid PII loss issues?  
Don't ever hold credit card, SSN, etc.  Contract it out and make it someone else's problem, someone big enough to A) do it right and 
B) absorb the occasional flaw.  Want to make sure you are anonymizing well enough?  Contract it out...  Don't want to accidentally 
lose personnel data on a laptop, ...

Rinse, repeat.
