The implications of GDPR on SMEs

Natasha Williams, BSc Business Information Systems
My final year study project is focusing on the impact that the recent General Data Protection Regulation has had on small to medium-sized enterprises. It will uncover the experiences these businesses went through to become compliant with the GDPR and their opinions on it, both positive and negative. I have completed interviews and questionnaires with 42 different SMEs, as well as a literature review to collect my findings.

PyParson Website

Kartikay Jainwal, BSc Software Engineering
PyParson is a website to practice programming and keep track of your progress in order to only be given relevant topics that challenge you. This is done using Parson’s Puzzles which are a way to practice programming logic and syntax. Instead of writing a program from scratch, you are given a small program but the lines are in a random order. You have to reposition the lines to make the program work correctly.

Secure One Time Messaging

Jassen Pelteshki, BSc Computer Science
This project explores the creation of a secure networking application allowing users to send end-to-end and at-rest encrypted messages using java sockets. The project experiments with giving the sender of the message full control even after the message has left their device, to allow remote deletion and set message control parameters, all while authenticating the communication between all parties. A key area of research is the secure deletion of each message through the use of memory management.
