In 2020-1 the Digital Preservation Coalition engaged in a project with The National Archives and the University of Warwick to establish a collaborative approach to manage digital preservation risk and bring statistical risk management methods into the digital heritage sphere.

Safeguarding the Nation’s Digital Memory created a structured evidence base to map and explain risk and developed a tool (DiAGRAM - the Digital Archives Graphical Risk Assessment Model) to enable archivists to prioritise threats and select suitable actions to mitigate them.


The DPC supported the project by hosting a number of online dissemination events.


The DPC also carried out an evaluation of the project:


The project was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
