Brief History

Turkish Personal Data Protection Law no. 6698 is based on the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC of European Parliament and European Commission, published in the Official Gazette dated 7/04/2016 no. 29677. Personal data that is processed before the date of publication of the law, must become compliant with the rules stated in the law in two years starting from publishing date. In other words, all personal data processed before 07/04/2016 should have become compliant with the law by 07/04/2018.

In addition, GDPR has replaced Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC of European Council and Parliament. It is the most important change in data security over the last 20 years. This law, adopted by the European Parliament on 14 June 2016, has been effective as of 25 May 2018 and imposes severe penalties on organizations that do not comply with laws on compliance.


In order to protect each personal data possessed (digitally or physically) with the principle of right to privacy, organizations are obliged to prepare required technical and administrative infrastructures. Furthermore, they need to realize all necessary legal regulations in terms of actions to be taken when personal data are acquired by third parties.

Your data, which must be kept confidential, are generated through the exchange of information between you and your employees, their families, clients, suppliers and any other third-party organizations. Digital transformation requires fundamental changes in the services you provide in all areas of your business and operations of any kinds. This new cultural formation will only be possible by radically changing the status quo that provides administrative and operational comfort in your organization.
