The ARC is able to perform targeted research in the area of computer forensics, data recovery, data sanitisation and electronic recycling.

Examples of current projects

  • The ARC is currently working on a research project to review the requirements of software overwriting tools and techniques. The outcome of this project will be to define best practice that is underpinned by scientific rigor. As part of this project the ARC has undertaken a series of scientific experiments on a variety of media and is now reviewing how end of life management is critical during IOT product development in order to promote re-use.
  • The ARC is scheduled to review data recovery from media which has been shredded to differing sized particles. Project is to start in Q3 2019.
  • The ARC is currently working on a project for the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) as part of the Predictive Cyber Analytics. The title is ACC6004611; A Particle Swarm Model for Agile Cyber Attack Prediction with a predicted completion date of July 2019.
