Helping Clients address data governance, data quality, compliance and risk

Data Guardian by CSLI is a monthly subscription technology service which automatically monitors and provides insight into your data to ensure conformance with Corporate Governance, Compliance and Risk based requirements.

The service provides a central, easy to use and responsive web based application where business exceptions, metrics and thresholds can be managed, deployed, tracked and reported on. This minimises the burden of manual exception reporting, enforces data quality ownership and promotes self-service resolution and reporting.

Issue Detection and Management

Improve confidence through continuous monitoring and back testing. Detect, assign and track data quality issues, governance, compliance issues and risks.

Real-Time Data Notification & Alerting

Trigger system and email notifications to keep users informed of important data events as they occur in your application systems.

Business Metric Capture

Benefit from systematic business metric capture and self-service reporting, leading to actionable decision making.

How it Works

Data Guardian connects to any structured data and allows you to build and run rules that check for specific conditions. These rules will then generate a set of results which will trigger an action for the appropriate data owner or team.

Once you connect Data Guardian to your data and define the rules, Data Guardian takes care of the rest. A data governance solution that combines people, process and technology.


The implementation of Data Guardian follows 6 easy steps that help you achieve rapid results without significant overhead to your management and workforce. Our years of experience have taught us that the key to a successful implementation is to start with a small footprint and set out a sustainable workload so as to minimise impact to management and the users.

After your first rule is created, you can rest at ease knowing that Data Guardian will continue to watch over your data so long as it is in place. Once familiar with the system and interface, you can start to expand the rule base and complexity at your own pace. Data Guardian will continue to action and assign issues back to the data stewards you have identified as being responsible for the data.

Bottom line, you get results immediately with little effort, and once the system is up and running, it does the hard work for you.
