BCS should apply appropriate practice and comply with DPA and GDPR. Additional statements may be inappropriate.

This should be future practice, but I would question the value/ impact of such a public statement

I was only aware of a MG data transfer when my list-server mailing lists stopped working (...not at the same time, either!) i.e. I was not aware, in advance, that this was to happen. Similarly, I was not aware that any data had been lost.
I agree that there will be little to be gained by making a public statement (i.e. washing our dirty laundry in public), unless this contravened GDPR (in which case it should have been notified to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) already), however I agree that this needs to be committed to going forward. We are supposed to be *The* Institute for IT, its not very good publicity if we can't get our own house in order.

Don't see much point doing this for past issues (unless it's a formal apology for the problems caused) but yes for future issues.
