George would still welcome suggestions for what we would like to see, along with suggestions about what the purpose of these notifications is.
Victoria is raising the issue with the University DPO. Alastair will follow up.

Report from Computing Executive Group
Reports from Units
There was general agreement that these have been coping well.
Alison clarified that changing the redirection of the support telephone numbers requires speaking to a human.
Chris requested that the computing.help page for the support desk be updated to reflect currently available methods of accessing support. Alison agreed to do this.
Topics for discussion
There was general agreement that having a feed from whosoff to individual O365 calendars was highly desirable. Unfortunately, there was equal agreement that the current mechanism for doing so was not acceptable under GDPR regulations. For the moment, we will need to go back to using the wiki page but CEG will consider how much effort, if any, should be put into developing an acceptable solution, given that whosoff is to be replaced in due course.
Neil stated that the main issue is likely to be with Wordpress sites. He is creating a project to cover this activity.
Neil asked how many of us were listening to the meeting using speakers rather than headphones, and whether this might be responsible for the echo heard when some were speaking. Graham pointed out that this seemed to be happening when more than one person spoke at the same time. It was agreed that using headphones was probably preferable.
Concern was expressed that having both an operation and project meeting every week might prove overly onerous. It was agreed that every effort should be made to keep these meetings as short as possible.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 22th April 2020 online at 10am.
