Abstract: In digital economy, data is regarded as the new oil. It is not only invaluable for the states in their endeavour to maintain national security and to prevent crimes, but also enterprises rely on personal data to maximize their volume of business and profits. However, free and unlimited access to personal data constitutes a threat to the data owners.
With a special focus on Turkish law, the Lunchtime Lecture will address the need and legal tools for protecting privacy and personal data in the digital age.
