Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

The ESRU Domestic Energy Model (EDEM) was developed to assist policy makers in analysis of options for improving carbon and energy performance of housing across a range of possible future technologies, behaviours and environmental factors. EDEM was formulated into an easy to use tool, built on results of detailed simulation models aligned with national housing survey data. From pragmatic inputs, EDEM can determine energy and carbon performance at any scale, from individual dwelling to national stock. EDEM was used to analyse potential upgrades including renewable energy systems and also to rate energy performance of dwellings as required by EU Directive (EU, 2002). This paper describes EDEM methodology, structure and operation then presents findings from application. While initial EDEM projects are for Scottish housing the methodology is applicable to other countries.
