“At the time of sensitive contractual negotiations with a future outsourcer, it was good and comfortable to be able to rely at any point of time on Jyn's legal sound expertise and commercial good sense.”
"Working with Jyn is a great experience as he brings in excellent technical knowledge while putting humans at the centre. He deep dives into the real pain points, runs root cause analysis to then bring the best team together to solve it. Jyn is a trusted advisor to his clients and embraces cross-competency collaboration to find valid answers to their challenges. It's a very enriching experience working with Jyn.”

“I approached Jyn in 2019 to teach core privacy management processes to the participants of the University of St. Gallen's Data Protection Officer (DPO-HSG) course, and he has been a permanent part of our lecture staff ever since. He manages to teach complex subjects such as privacy risk management in a way that combines the many practical lessons he learned during his years of serving as DPO in major corporations with deep insights into relevant privacy laws and regulations of a true subject matter expert. The participants of our course enjoy his enthusiasm as much as his hands-on approach to privacy management a lot and I'm more than happy to have him on board!”
