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.

This is what our customers 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

DataMapper has helped us find our sensitive data. I use DM about every 3 months to make sure we don't have information we shouldn't.

Mads HansenCOM at medium-sized company

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.

DataMapper FAQ

How can DataMapper help you comply with regulations? What should you do with high-risk documents you find? Get answers to frequently asked questions.

What is DataMapper?

DataMapper is a browser-based data discovery tool that finds and flags sensitive and personal data scattered throughout your systems. Sensitive data must be tracked and protected under new privacy regulations such as the GDPR, CCPA, PIPL, and more.

How can DataMapper help me comply with GDPR?

The GDPR and other regulations make you responsible for protecting all the personal information your company stores. To do this, you need an easy way to sort and track files and emails that contain personal data.

Find out where all your data is stored 

Classify data by its sensitivity/risk level, type and format 

Choose and implement effective and compliant security controls  

Create accurate Data Privacy Impact Assessments 

Report personal data breaches and security incidents on time 

Continuously monitor your risk level and assess the impact of your data processing activities 

Keep documentation and create audit reports to comply with other legal requirements 

Who is DataMapper for?

DataMapper is designed for all companies that need to keep track of the personal and sensitive information they store for employees, customers and others.
By early 2021, 128 countries had legislation in place to secure the protection of data and privacy. Specific regulations vary, so make sure you are familiar with those that apply to your company.

What systems does DataMapper integrate with?

DataMapper integrates with Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft SharePoint, Google Drive, Google Mail, Azure Blob Storage, Local drives and Network drives (Windows Fileshare).

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

Most of the personal data your company stores will be related to employees and customers. Copying a list of employee or customer names will help DataMapper find sensitive documents that may present a risk of non-compliance and data breaches.
If you do not enter any names DataMapper can still find high-risk documents by searching sensitive keywords throughout your systems. For example, keywords related to medical conditions and personal history. But you will get a more complete result and can find and organize all documents related to your employees and customers if you add a list of names.

Is DataMapper difficult to set up?

Not at all, simply create an account and sign in.  You can use DataMapper right in your browser.

Is it safe to scan my local drive, Dropbox, email, etc. with DataMapper?

Yes. You decide which storage folders you want to scan with DataMapper. Only folders you select will be searched for personal data.

All data tracked in DataMapper is encrypted and transferred over HTTPS using RSA with SHA-256. It’s processed on AWS(Amazon) and Azure(Microsoft) servers located in the EU.

DataMapper follows the Danish government’s Agency on Digitization’s best practice guidelines for IT providers.

How do I activate auto-scan for Outlook?

Your DataMapper will automatically update to the latest version, which includes auto-scan for Outlook. To activate auto-scan for Outlook, go to your Data Locations tab and reauthorize and scan your Outlook folders once.

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 types of image files will DataMapper detect?

DataMapper scans for images of the file type pdf, jpg, png and HEIC including images taken with a mobile camera. Image file sizes must be between 15 kb and 6 mb. Images that have been processed with a graphics tool, embedded in an email or taken with an DSLR camera will not be scanned.

Should I delete high-risk documents?

Not necessarily.

The GDPR makes you responsible for protecting the personal information shared with you. Knowing where it is and who has access to it is the first step. DataMapper takes care of that easily.

Your company probably needs to store certain information on current employees and customers in order to run smoothly.

However, DataMapper may reveal that you still have sensitive information on file that you don’t need anymore. How long you retain data related to former customers and employees may depend on your company policies and local regulations for your sector.

If you keep sensitive data for too long, even if you are keeping it safe, you may still be violating requirements. Reducing the amount and types of personal data you collect and keep is one way to simplify compliance with the GDPR and stay data-ethical.

What should I do with high-risk documents?

If DataMapper shows you have a high GDPR risk score, you can review the locations of high-risk documents and see who has access to them from your DataMapper dashboard.

This will help you decide if you should limit access to sensitive data, standardize storage locations, and perhaps delete data that is no longer needed.

How many users should I add?

Different members of your team may be storing company information in different locations online and on their own computers. Invite your whole team to join DataMapper so that all company information can be mapped for GDPR risk.

The account creator (Admin) will get a complete summary of all results on their dashboard, while individual team members will only view their own results.
