Sandra Särav

Sandra Särav is the Data Policy Director in the Estonian Government CIO Office, leading the work on data re-use as well as application of privacy enhancing technologies.

This is not her first role in the government, she just made a 3-year detour to private sector, gaining experience both at the Estonian tech unicorn Bolt, as well as Meta (Facebook), but decided to rejoin the public sector in early 2022.

What brought her back to government was the sense of mission of building solutions for your own country.

In parallel, she’s also a lecturer at TalTech, teaching legal framework of digital government and EU law.
