Eija Warma-Lehtinen among top 100 IT influencers for the eighth year in a row

Eija Warma-Lehtinen, head of the Data & Technology service and partner at Castrén & Snellman, is on the Finnish technology magazine Tivi’s list of top 100 IT influencers for the eighth year in a row. This year the list emphasises professionals in the field of artificial intelligence and sustainable IT development.

‘It is an honour to be recognised once again. Our team’s expertise in regulation and contracts has been in high demand in the current security situation. External threats and cyberattacks are on the rise, and an increasing part of our work revolves around issues that require specific technical know-how in addition to legal expertise. Luckily, our team is well equipped to handle such assignments,’ says Eija.

‘Furthermore, the wave of data regulation has truly hit us and our clients. Last month, the EU reached a political consensus on the AI Act, the implementation of which will be very interesting. Understanding the new regulation is key in recognising business benefits, and we are here to support our clients in this strategic implementation work.’

Eija advises our clients in a wide range of matters concerning the use and regulation of AI, AI-related contracts, the GDPR, the interface between regulation and adopting new technologies as well as data transfers and data breaches.
