DataMapper data flow diagram

DataMapper can scan personal sensitive data from cloud solutions, desktop and network drives. Data can only be scanned, when the users choses the location and folders to scan and authenticates the scan using security tokes. Data is then moved to a secure tenant within a personal resource group where data is scanned and processed with AI/ML algoritms.

The scanned meta data (extracted data) is then transferred securely to a storage in your personal Azure tenant, where it will be used by DataMapper to visualize risks, enabling the user to clean up.

Our ethical AI 

As AI becomes more and more widely used, questions about its ethics arise. Indeed, anytime you use AI, you should ask if it is ethical and use it responsibly. That is what we do at Safe Online.

Ethical AI should adhere to well-defined ethical guidelines and protect fundamental values, including: 

  • Individual rights 
  • Privacy 
  • Non-discrimination 
  • Non-manipulation 

DataMapper’s AI does not create ethical concerns, for the following reasons: 

  • DataMapper uses AI to quickly detect and classify the personal data you already store in your systems. It does not collect additional data from your customers in any way. 
  • You decide who to invite to DataMapper, and what access they will have to the information gathered. You can give a user access to only their own data storage (regular user); or give them access to data and statistics for the whole company. 
  • Once DataMapper’s AI finds sensitive data and shows it to you, it is up to you to decide what to do with it. DataMapper’s AI cannot be used for automated decision making and it does not alter or manipulate the data in any way.
