Sustainability of Data Protection

Data controllers are obliged to take the necessary technical and administrative measures to ensure data privacy and data security within the scope of both the Turkish Personal Data Protection Law No. 6698 ("KVKK") and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") in Europe. These measures are not specified in a limited number, but they are stipulated to determine the need of data controllers for "necessity." This necessity differs for each activity.
