comment How to secure database table of users for an application?
This is one good solution and a general best practice, but it can be hard to implement in a mature application, especially when using an ORM or other "rich query" framework. There are other options as I cover in my answer.

Companies that give a flip about IT security don't advertise a lot of the security measures they take. Why make it that much easier for an attacker to identify potential holes?

No. Either a key on the server and a key on the client can be used in the scheme I described, which is simpler than Adman's SSSS. The server never knows the password used to generate the key, nor the private key that can obtain it from the recovery key data it stores, but the user and the company have access to each. And the fact that the family has to present a death certificate is evidence in itself that the recovery mechanism has at least somewhat more process to it than storing the recovery key in a thumb drive in the top drawer.
