DataMapper is a sensitive data discovery tool

“You have loads of sensitive personal data is buried in your emails, hard drives and cloud storage. Do you have the time to sort through it regularly and monitor everything properly? Most of us don’t.

DataMapper is a smart data discovery tool that scans your local and cloud-based systems for sensitive information in just a few minutes. A user-friendly, no-code tool, with no IT support required for setup.

Quickly find files and emails that contain words and terms that should get special protection under the GDPR. Invite all your employees to scan their own locations or run an admin scan for the whole team. You’ll get an overview of files that may contain sensitive information. Preview each file and see why it was flagged. Then you decide what to do with it. Spot inappropriate workflows before they cause problems and continuously improve your data practices.”

What does the lawyer say about DataMapper?

“DataMapper is, in my professional opinion, an excellent tool that can be of great help to a company in terms of cleaning up its data. DataMapper uses artificial intelligence to find text strings related to sensitive personal data. It means that you can look out for how you handle your personal data relatively quickly, with few funds and without much insight into data regulation. DataMapper alone is not enough to ensure compliance, but it is a good step on the way there.”

How DataMapper works


DataMapper is a browser-based data discovery tool.

DataMapper’s AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) algorithms find numbers and word which can be categorised as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) across your company’s employees, cloud storage, emails, systems and apps. It automatically classifies files into 80 different categories with up to 98% accuracy.


PII scanner

Scan your files, emails and images for sensitive words and numbers.

Global monitor

Supervise the entire company’s data on Outlook, SharePoint, OneDrive, Google Drive and network drives.


Get a complete overview and key statistics about your risk files.

Risk score

Files are classified as high, medium or no risk of containing sensitive data.

Smart filters

Instantly pull up lists of files by type, a person’s name, file age, owner, location, etc.


For each document and email, you can see the file location, who created the file, who has access to the file, etc.

Manage files

Check each file and mark it as “OK”, or go straight to its original storage location to delete, move, or restrict access to it.


Admins can invite users, see which employees have the most sensitive data, and monitor risk files for the whole company.


With a Power BI-tool you can get complete reports on how you handle sensitive data to use as documentation for data audits according to GDPR article 30.


Get clean up assistance with notification mails every 14th day on updates to your data containing sensitive data.

Business leaders on DataMapper

“I'm amazed at how easy DataMapper is to work with.

Who knew it could be so easy? DataMapper found files I suspected of containing sensitive information (plus some!) and showed me exactly where they were stored. Going through all the sensitive information we’ve collected is a task that is all too easy to put off or even forget. Now there is finally a tool to make it simple. I can keep track of everything and see who cleans up, which was exactly what I needed!
As a business owner and board member, I believe that DataMapper should be a mandatory system for every business.

Kim Storm
Owner of the compliance company IDM365

"Every company should have DataMapper.

Secure data handling should be an essential part of every modern company’s modus operandi. Unfortunately, there is a common perception that sensitive data management is too complicated and difficult, and that makes people feel justified in skipping key security steps and shifting focus to other tasks they are more familiar with. I think that’s why so many companies are still not taking responsibility for the personal data they store.
I’ve demoed DataMapper several times, and I am impressed by how easy it can be for people to decide what to do with sensitive data once it is all highlighted and neatly laid out in front of them.

What users say about DataMapper

We use Datamapper to scan our emails and drives for GDPR content. It was super easy to install and easy to access. At first, we used it to clean up everything that had accumulated over time. Now we use it continuously to ensure that we comply with our own rules. I can definitely recommend Datamapper. Safe Online were great at helping us get started and when we have questions, they respond quickly.

Kristian HansenCoordinator at Dansk Søredningsselskab

We are an IT and BI consultancy that we receive new personal data every day that we must handle correctly. DataMapper is a smart solution that easily gives us an overview of our sensitive personal data in our company. When it comes to GDPR compliance, DataMapper solves a key task for us.

Pelle EilandCEO, Fairpeople

After we scanned with DataMapper, I was a little unsure what now? But then I discovered that there were some different folders that would be good to get "locked" so that not everyone can just access them. Then I found out that we could use one of our other solutions to store important information on customers, so that it is not on our PC, but secured, online. I have started to keep an eye on our emails, to ensure that we do store things that we shouldn't in our mail box.

Maja PedersenHR Chief, JP Vagt

In our company, we are not very good at cleaning up or keeping our data centers in order. We have data folders to help us with that. It is a small ingenious service that can quickly and efficiently look through all our data. As responsible for GDPR, it gives me help for a good night's sleep.

Peter AndersenIT-Manager in medium-sized company

Delivering security and compliance solutions is what we do. We’ve partnered with Safe Online to offer their privacy solutions to our clients, but we also use them ourselves. Since we both focus on GDPR compliance and safe IT solutions, it’s a perfect fit."

Thomas LarsenCTO, Datacompagniet

We were very pleased with how DataMapper works. We began a process where we scan our data at least once a month. After each scan, we are presented with a list of the files that contain personal sensitive data. We can then choose to delete or move the files. We are also able to see when the files were created and who has access to them, which is a big help in identifying any security risks. DataMapper makes it easier for us to comply with GDPR.

Mette DavidsenOffice Assistent, Backupvikar

GDPR is not something we have the time or desire to spend a lot of energy on. Datamapper is superb at giving us an overview of our data. It definitely gets my recommendation.

Søren HenriksenData Protection Officer at medium-sized company

DataMapper is part of PrivacyHub

DataMapper belongs to the SaaS platform, PrivacyHub, which is a platform for handling the company’s sensitive personal data. PrivacyHub has divided the processing of personal data into three phases. With RequestManager, it is possible for a company to receive data requests. To locate data, data must be found – here DataMapper is used. ShareSimple is used to securely share (or receive) personal data. With PrivacyHub, a company gets the opportunity to automate the process from personal data entering the company’s data systems while personal data is in the company until personal data leaves the company again. The three services work separately, but can work in a symbiosis. PrivacyHub is created so that companies can start with one solution and add another if the need arises.

Why get ShareSimple when you have DataMapper?
DataMapper users find loads of sensitive data in old emails and attachments. Identifying all this sensitive data with DataMapper makes it quick and easy to clean up your inboxes. But if sensitive data keeps coming in emails, you may find yourself repeating the same steps over and over, just to keep up. By using ShareSimple sensitive information is kept out of your emails and inboxes altogether. 

ShareSimple is a user-friendly add-in for Microsoft Outlook that instantly creates an encrypted connection for sharing sensitive information securely. Why is this so awesome? When you share personal data with regular email, two or more copies are created. This increases the risk of data leaks and breaches. With ShareSimple, no extra copies are made; and all data is encrypted and deleted automatically within a set data retention period.

Why get RequestManager when you have DataMapper?
DataMapper makes it easy to keep track of all the personal data you store about your customers, employees and others. But what about someone sends you a request about their data? Many of the companies we talk to say they still don’t have a system in place for receiving data requests and responding to them. Enter RequestManager. RequestManager receives, verifies and delivers all your data requests to one dashboard, then reminds you to respond on time. Then, just use DataMapper to quickly pull up all the data you store about the requester and deliver it neatly and safely before the deadline.

Your risk documents tab and dashboard will now be updated each evening to show any new sensitive data found in the day’s emails, plus the progress you’ve made cleaning up your inboxes.


What should I do with files containing sensitive information?

You should first get a handle on where the files with the sensitive information are located and who has access to the files. This will help you decide whether to restrict access to the files, delete data or otherwise. DataMapper can help you with all of this.

Should I delete files with sensitive information?

Not necessarily.

Privacy regulations makes you responsible for protecting the data with sensitive information shared with you. Your company probably needs to store certain information – information about employees and customers, for example – in order to function normally.

However, it is normal for companies to have sensitive data that they should no longer have. How long you store data depends on the data rules that apply to your companies.

If you store sensitive data for too long, even if it is stored securely and not misused, you may still be in breach of the requirements. By reducing the amount of sensitive data you collect and store, you can minimize the damage from a data breach.

Why does it ask me to add names of employees and customers?

Sensitive data is not in itself sensitive information. It only happens when they are put in relation to a person. By adding names, data is put into relation. This enables DataMapper to categorize whether or not sensitive data is sensitive information.

If no names are entered, DataMapper can still find high-risk documents by searching your systems for sensitive keywords. For example, keywords related to medical conditions and personal history. But you get a more complete result by entering the names of, for example, employees and customers.

How many users should I add?

The administrator can invite all employees who have a company email to use DataMapper.

Is DataMapper difficult to set up?


With DataMapper you can get started on your own in just a few minutes. If you have any questions during or after implementation, our customer support team is always ready to help.

  • Local drives
  • Network drives (Windows Fileshare)
