And it's important the "planners" ring fence that data and make sure
they justify why they need it.
"Hello Mr Clearing Bank, I'm from Little-Puddle-on-the-Wold Parish
Council and am planning for the emergency situation that ATMs and C&P
machines are taken offline for an extended period by some unpredictable
telecoms outage, and this will create a cash shortage that will be
very damaging to the local economy. I need a list of all your customers:
name address and account number, and average balance/overdraft
"Address to see how close their nearest physical bank branch is,
balance/overdraft facility to see how much cash they can draw there
(credit card facilities at the bank are also broken by this outage),
name and account number to de-dupe persons with multiple accounts".
"Hmm, sound a bit phishy to me".
 A real emergency planning scenario.
