Dr. Kipker’s focus is on ques­ti­ons of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty com­pli­ance. Hea­ded by Sala­ry Part­ner Ste­fan Hes­sel, reuschlaw’s DBU advi­ses com­pa­nies and public agen­ci­es in com­plex legal ques­ti­ons in the fields of data pro­tec­tion, cyber­se­cu­ri­ty and IT law.

He also works as a legal advi­sor for VDE and CERT@VDE in addi­ti­on to his work in the poli­cy area as a board mem­ber of the Euro­pean Aca­de­my for Free­dom of Infor­ma­ti­on and Data Pro­tec­tion (EAID) in Ber­lin, which con­cerns the future of IT regu­la­ti­on in Ger­ma­ny and the EU. In the­se func­tions, he works to deve­lop and imple­ment prag­ma­tic solu­ti­ons for digi­tal com­pli­ance and IT stra­tegy plan­ning, and in the cour­se of this work he is rou­ti­ne­ly asked to pro­vi­de advice and expert opi­ni­ons for various Ger­man and Euro­pean insti­tu­ti­ons, inclu­ding Ger­man Fede­ral Minis­tries and the Euro­pean Com­mis­si­on.

As of 2022, Kip­ker heads the “Digi­tiza­ti­on” working group in the Pre­si­di­um of the Ger­man Infor­ma­tics Society.

Phil­ipp Reusch com­men­ted as fol­lows: “I am extra­or­di­na­ri­ly plea­sed that we have been able to add Dennis-Kenji Kip­ker as of coun­sel for our Digi­tal Busi­ness Unit. Experts of his calib­re, with such exten­si­ve expe­ri­ence, are few and far bet­ween. Pro­fes­sor Kip­ker shares our pas­si­on for pro­vi­ding advice at the inter­sec­tion bet­ween law and tech­no­lo­gy. He will ser­ve not only as a spar­ring part­ner but as a key dri­ver for our Digi­tal Busi­ness Unit.”
