Stine Mangor Tornmark, CEO and Co-founder, Openli

Stine is the CEO and Co-founder of Openli (a privacy tech company). Privacy and protecting data is important and with AI and the increasing need for data, it's becoming even more important in the future. Why? Because companies build and operate their entire business through software, tools and in the cloud. So they need to be on top of their own and all their vendors' GDPR & privacy efforts. That's what Openli helps with: helping companies comply with the GDPR and scale their privacy efforts.

Stine has a law degree and has been working as an attorney for 6 years in Denmark advising fortune top 500 companies about privacy & tech. After that, she built a legal & compliance team from 1 to 40+ people at Trustpilot and founded Openli that today helps companies with privacy & GDPR. She has been advising the Danish Government (Digitaliseringspartnerskabet), OECD and other organizations on digitalisation, digital trust and privacy.
