Affordable data governance in a single cybersecurity dashboard!

Why DataWise?

Our cybersecurity dashboard, DataWise, has been designed and built to manage Data Protection in a single dashboard. It provides practical features and templates for data protection compliance, allowing organisations to automate and control many of the tasks required to comply with legislation like the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We have been busy behind the scenes developing an updated release of DataWise 2.0. The new update is mobile-friendly, simple to use and practical. The cybersecurity dashboard now features a comprehensive register of all your data assets, data processes and risks. Sign up for our newsletter to receive information on the release date!

A comprehensive register of all of your IT and data assets, data processes and flows, giving you a 360º view of your data processing activities including owner, location, security, controls, etc.

DataWise enables activity reports to be generated to provide managers with a summary of all of the user activity on the system with ease.

We are always happy to make contact with you by either phone, email or a face to face meeting at our office or yours. We work standard UK office hours – every week day 0830 to 1730.


We have been advising those people who have contacted us that they should make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) using this link  It would be helpful to the ICO if you knew the number that called you, the date and time of the call and what the call seemed to be about.

You might also want to register your phone number with the telephone preference service (TPS), a national suppression service which should cut down calls of this nature as it is not lawful to make unsolicited direct marketing calls to numbers registered on the TPS.  You can register your number here

We know that these kind of calls can be distressing and intrusive and you have our sympathy.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss it with us otherwise we’d encourage you to report it to the ICO as notifying them of this kind of practice enables them to investigate and take enforcement action where necessary.  You can see the action that has been taken by the ICO here
