She focussed during her master studies on data protection and IT security law from a transnational perspective.

Contribution to Legal Tech
Stefanie is focussing on developments in the ad technology environment including real time bidding processes, where the guidelines and laws are still a step beyond reality. Furthermore, she supports clients to build a bridge between data protection practises and “intelligent” technologies such as artificial intelligence which are implemented into websites, games and applications. The combination of new technologies and rather old legal structures are a part of her day-to-day practices. She is able to adapt legal frameworks into new developments and to foster a culture of privacy by design and by default for her clients.
She is also training a new generation of data protection officers during her courses to obtain basic knowledge to work as in-house data protection officers for small and medium sized-companies in Germany.
