Data Protection

Data protection and privacy has become a very crucial topic both for Turkish companies especially for those being part of a multinational organization following the enactment of Data Protection Law no. 6698 (Turkish: Kişisel Verilerin Korunması Hakkında Kanun). Our experienced Data Protection Team advice on a broad range of complex data protection issues such as data collection, processing, cross border data transfers and centralized databases exposes several legal and regulatory challenges.

The significance of data protection law continues to grow and raises issues of fundamental importance to individuals, businesses and organizations. Durukan helps its clients negotiate this complicated area of law, ensuring personal data is protected and helping to manage the consequences when it is not.

The financial and reputational damage caused by a data breach can have devastating consequences to businesses and organizations. Meanwhile the breach of an individual’s information rights can have a significant impact upon their personal and professional lives. Dealing with a data breach of any nature can carry significant risks, whether you are an individual or a business. We will work closely with you to understand the issue and what you hope to achieve, advising you of an appropriate approach and the likely outcomes.

Our Data Protection Team can provide your organization with accurately targeted, well-rounded and expert legal advice so that you may meet the expectations of the Turkish laws.
