Awen Collective Ltd. is a spin-out of the University of South Wales, developing next generation digital forensics software solutions. Our initial focus is manufacturing and critical infrastructure – such as energy and water. We are based in Cardiff, Wales but work across the UK and globally.

We feel honoured and privileged to have been supported by UK Government grants thanks to the National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021. These grants came to us through the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport via their Academic Startups Initiative. We are also a member of the CyberExchange, which is a focal point for cyber organisations in the UK. We also have membership of a “people-accelerator” called Entrepreneurial Spark, powered by NatWest bank.

WE WANT TO HEAR from digital forensics teams, critical infrastructure organisations and manufacturing businesses to help us shape our solutions to match problems.
