Data Protection & Privacy

Türkiye is keeping abreast of the rapidly evolving digital environment through continual changes to its domestic data protection regulations. Business owners and data controllers need to stay ahead, informed, and compliant. 

We understand how valuable data is to you and can help implement the most strategic processes and programmes to avoid breaches of domestic legislation. If you are an international player, we will seek to align Turkish data strategies with any cross-border and international goals you may have.
