Digital transformation is the main tool for improving our future. But there are some consequences of the digital transformation, created intentionally or accidentally, which contribute to the damage of our society based on democratic values. It is important that the creation of new business models as a result of digital transformation takes place within the framework of respect for democratic principles and legal regulations and that it benefits the entire society. We, as people of this new era, are not always able to see all the related risks that this digital revolution brings, so we created a document that should make it easier for us to implement digital transformation in our work or private lives: "10 PRINCIPLES FOR MY LIFE IN A DEMOCRACY".
