  3. Report from Computing Executive Group

    1. College encryption policy
      • (There was some discussion here, some later in the meeting, and some subsequently in the chatroom. For clarity it has been "minuted" here.)
      • New kit should now be being encrypted as it arrives. Alison has a CEG action to document this process. There should also be a user-facing note added somewhere.
      • We should have some advice for those travelling with encrypted kit. This may not be straightforward.
      • Is there really a commitment to support home machines??
      • IS's documentation appears to be incorrect or incomplete as regards Windows and BitLocker.
      • Our own "Campus" documentation is a bit confusing in places. (That's partly because this whole area is confusing!)
      • Further comments welcome!
      • There should be a blog article in due course.
      • Alastair will be collating all this...
  4. Reports from Units

  5. Topics for discussion

  6. Items for the Computing Systems blog
