When designing compliance policies and workflows for the GDPR or Turkish Law KVKK, there is a broad range of expertise that is required, from having experience with the practical implications of applying data protection and information security, to managing an operational environment, to implementing information governance practices, to applying change management in complex regulatory circumstances. BOLD&Digital team has a strong track record of collaborating across legal, IT, compliance and lines of business to ensure input from and transparency with key stakeholders on policy development and implementation – as well as several GDPR and Turish Law KVKK preparedness engagements completed.
GDPR and Turkish Law KVKK recently went into effect, yet many multinational companies are still behind the compliance curve.
