Decide that you would need to write a secure app to retrieve this data securely

App would have to be written to NATO security level double-plus-top-ultra-secret and be approved by MI5, GCHQ, MMB and the Dennis the Menace Fan Club

Point out that this would cost "One Million Dollars"

Refuse the FOI request on the grounds that it would be too expensive to comply

Repeat for any and all future FOI requests
