At its meeting on November 26, the Policy Oversight Committee approved proposals for revisions to two policies:
Appropriate Use of Computing Facilities
These policies now move to the Draft Approval phase where research, writing and consultation will occur.
In early December, consultation opened for a new policy - Electronic Data Security, which is being developed to complement policies such as Privacy, Data Removal and Security of Confidential Information Housed in Administrative Systems. Consultation will continue until January 15, 2010. The details can be found at Status of Policy Development.
