[Gnso-epdp-team] Section 4.4.8

I am generally in support of this, but I question the term "grounded 
in legal bases". It this the legal basis in reference to GDPR  (ie 
that there needs to be a legitimate demonstrable need to access 
otherwise private information). Or a legal basis as in reference to 
law enforcement having a right to demand certain information.

I can accept the former (if it is made clear), but not the latter. 
ICANN's Mission-defined interest in ensuring that security and 
stability of the DNS (and by implication, the trusted nature of the 
DNS) may create a need for cybersecurity workers to have access to 
certain data, but there is no LAW that gives them that right.
