Eija Warma-Lehtinen among Top 100 IT influencers for the seventh year in a row

Finnish technology magazine Tivi listed its 100 IT industry influencers for the 20th time. Eija Warma-Lehtinen, co-head of the Data & Technology service and partner at Castrén & Snellman, is on the list for the seventh year in a row. This year the list emphasises experts in information security and cyber security.

‘I am honoured to be in such talented company once again. Our team has had a very busy year with various authority reviews and legal processes as operators challenge the interpretations of the data protection authorities and defend their rights. The significance of data protection matters in mergers and acquisitions has also grown exponentially, and often we have to consider the effect of the practical implementation of data protection on the outcome of the transaction,’ Eija says.

‘In addition, our clients’ increased interest towards sustainable data processing can be seen in our every-day work, and building sustainable and responsible solutions with our clients to support their business has kept us extremely busy.’

Eija advises our clients in a wide range of issues relating to the application of the GDPR, the interface between regulation and the adoption of new technologies, and data breaches. Eija is also a popular lecturer on these subjects.
