Abstract

This paper aims to provide a comparative overview and evaluation of various legal frameworks for electronic communications security in light of the recent developments in the electronic communications sector. The article also includes an insight on European Union and Turkish legal environment for data protection security in electronic communications sector.

The dynamic and ever-changing nature of electronic communication technologies brings brand new opportunities for quick access to extensive information and communication through integrated channels. On the other hand such dynamic nature paves the way for new challenges and concerns regarding electronic communications security. Both national and international sector regulators and policy-makers are encountering new threats for security of electronic communications while trying to adapt to convergence and the ongoing tendency for Internet Protocol (“IP”) based digital networks. Various legal frameworks come into force accordingly and legal security measures are created by the regulators and the sector actors, in order to overcome security concerns. Evolution of electronic communication technologies and new challenges that it yields, forces national and international authorities to work for unified solutions and cooperation in fighting against these challenges.
