Perhaps the Right Thing(SM) to do is to update the best practices
documents regarding role e-mail accounts for network operators.
1. Add "networkmaster at example.com" to the list of required role accounts.
2. Require that e-mail sent to role "networkmaster at example.com" be
accessible in some way by all technical people for the network in
question. This can be done using a ticket system, or a simple mail
3. Require that e-mail sent to role account "abuse at example.com" by
accessible in some way by all members of the abuse desk. This can be
done using a ticket system, or a simple mail exploder.
4. Require the WHOIS information specify exactly these role accounts
for TECH and ABUSE, not a person. This gets around the GDPR
requirements while maintaining the usefulness of the WHOIS without
having to go through an intermediate party or web site.
ICANN may want to consider this idea when adjusting its contracts with
registrars to eliminate GDPR exposure.
