Do we care enough for privacy(privacy by design / default) as part of our business flows?
The reforms of the Personal Data Protection Law, which entered into force in 2016, will be carried out in line with the GDPR by the end of March 2022. The evaluations made by the Personal Data Protection Board also show that the concepts of privacy by design and privacy by default will be of great importance in the upcoming period. Below we present the checkpoints we have created for you to review in terms of your business processes:
