Should waterproof before finishing basement?

I am planning to finish my basement. I hired GC, and he will start to work pretty soon. The GC didn’t mention waterproofing, but I read some remodeling website that waterproof is needed before finishing basement.

My house was built in 2004 and haven’t had any water issues so far. I have sump pump in my basement.

Should I waterproof before finishing basement?
