Impacts of KVKK on Business and Compliance Strategies

With the rapid progress in information technologies and the spread of digitalization, the protection and processing of personal data has gained great importance. With the Personal Data Protection Law (KVKK), which is a very important regulator and guide for companies in our country, companies have had to make significant changes in their data processing processes.

With the KVKK, the processing of personal data has become a transparent and accountable process. Businesses have had to comply with legal requirements as well as increasing customer confidence by clearly stating the processes of data collection, use and sharing.

The penal sanctions imposed by the KVKK direct businesses to act more meticulously in terms of data security. Therefore, by strengthening data protection cautions, businesses both fulfill legal requirements and strengthen customer trust. In addition, with the KVKK, businesses are obliged to obtain more permissions in data processing processes. Especially in the case of processing sensitive personal data, more careful and lawful actions should be taken. This requires businesses to review and appropriately adjust the way they collect and use data.

Another important requirement of the KVKK is the obligation of companies to ensure continuity in data management. This means that businesses need to allocate more resources to audit their data processing activities and ensure compliance with the KVKK. Large-scale enterprises and enterprises that engage in certain types of data processing activities should definitely form a committee to ensure compliance with the KVKK; this committee should continuously monitor the data processing activities of the enterprise to ensure compliance with the KVKK and contact the supervisory authority when necessary.

In conclusion, the impact of the KVKK on the business world is great and inevitable. Businesses must comply with the principles of transparency, accountability and security in their data processing processes. Taking the necessary steps to ensure compliance in this process and strengthening the data protection culture will enable businesses to both comply with legal requirements and gain competitive advantage.
