Protecting your confidential information isn’t just good business, it’s the law!

Like most businesses that work with private and confidential information, dealers and dealer networks are heavily regulated and governed. And laws designed to protect identities, financial data, and personal privacy come with strict rules – and strong fines for violating them. We can help you stay compliant. In addition to your industry regulations governing information privacy, here are a few of the key information security laws that also apply:

Gramm-Leach Bliley Act

Protects the privacy of consumer information held by any business that provides financial products or services. It also ensures privacy protections against the sale of any private financial information. Violators can be fined up to $1,000,000.

Disposal Rule

Requires all companies, including auto dealers, to securely destroy consumer information to ensure customer privacy. Proper disposal includes shredding papers and security erasing digital records to ensure consumer reports are not left disorganized and unaccounted for.

Red Flag Rules

Requires dealerships and financial institutions to create a written identity theft prevention program to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission aims for a program that can help businesses spot suspicious patterns and prevent the costly consequences of identity theft.

Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards

Aims to enhance security for consumers by setting guidelines for any company that accepts, stores, processes, or transmits credit card information. The act focuses on improving payment security throughout the transaction process created by the major payment card brands.
