ARU is helping protect the region from cyber-crime

Government funding allows ARU to support businesses across East of England

UK Government funding means businesses across the East of England can contact Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) for advice and support to help protect themselves from cyber-crime.

Dr Christian Kemp and Adrian Winckles from ARU are working in partnership with the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit and Essex Police to examine the vulnerabilities and cyber-security practices of the region’s small and medium-sized businesses and organisations. The year-long project is supported by funding from the National Cyber Security Programme, via the Home Office.

The widespread nature of the problem was highlighted by a Government survey released this year, which showed that almost half of all UK businesses (46%) and a quarter of all charities (26%) had reported cyber-security breaches or attacks in the previous 12 months. Since that survey was carried out, an increase in remote working is likely to have put further strain on already stretched IT systems.

The project, which is being led by Dr Christian Kemp and Adrian Winckles, is bringing together ARU’s specialisms in cyber-criminology, digital policing, and cyber-security and technology.

Adrian is a Senior Lecturer in Computing and Information Science, and the Director of ARU's Cyber Security and Networking Research Group, while Christian is Course Leader for the BA (Hons) in Criminology and Policing, and has researched Dark Web networks and new patterns of online human trafficking.

BIMformed: Machine learning framework for predicting and preventing defects in buildings

Funded by Innovate UK, Silvia Cirstea, Razvan Dinita and Javad Zarrin from the School of Computing and Information Science worked with industry partner TR Control Solutions to tackle the challenge of reducing errors in the construction industry.

Availability of data in the construction industry is a major barrier, as most building workers do not get their instructions via digital devices and records of errors are not kept in digital form linked to the construction specification. To address this problem, the project developed a framework to collect and link up data from a number of sources, including workers’ profiles and understanding of task, captured via a web app, and construction task information extracted from specification models and design documents. Artificial Intelligence techniques were used to devise automatic generation of questionnaires to assess operatives' knowledge and understanding of the task.

A machine learning framework, based on Support Vector Machines, was developed and shown to be able to predict the likelihood of construction defects with sufficient reliability and accuracy on a pilot data set. Following the successful completion of this feasibility study with our partners in April 2020, collaboration continues to develop the framework into a commercial product.
