On June 9th, 2023, new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Safeguards Rule requirements will come into effect. By this date, auto dealerships throughout the United States are expected to have deployed and implemented an information security program with administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to:
The update to the Safeguards Rule extends the requirements first introduced in the 2003 Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and coincides with a number of cyberattacks against auto dealerships around the world:
These cyberattacks aren’t contained to Europe – auto dealerships in the United States are also at severe risk. In fact, a study released in October 2022 by leading automotive retail software provider CDK Global revealed that 15% of dealers — nearly one out of every six — experienced a cybersecurity incident in the past year, resulting in sensitive data breaches, business interruptions, and loss of revenue.
So, what makes auto dealerships an attractive target for cybercriminals? There are two primary reasons:
First, automotive dealerships are considered financial institutions and as a result, they process and store an abundance of sensitive customer information. This data holds considerable value for attackers because it can be used to extort a payment from the victim and because it can be leveraged in additional cyberattacks.
In the Safeguards Rule’s terminology, “customer information” is defined as “any record containing nonpublic personal information about a customer of a financial institution, whether in paper, electronic, or other form, that is handled or maintained by or on behalf of you or your affiliates.” It also further defines personally identifiable financial information to mean any information:
Just to clarify the breadth of what’s covered by that list, the Safeguards Rule also provides the following specific examples:
Many auto dealerships may think of themselves as a local small business within a community. In addition, their senior leadership team may understand the value of cybersecurity – in general – but may not see themselves as an attractive target. Therefore, it’s likely that cybersecurity is not top-of-mind for auto dealerships, rendering them poorly prepared to withstand or recover from a cyberattack.
For example, the CDK Global study found that only 37% of auto retailers reported being confident in their current level of protection against cyber threats. Interestingly, this is a 21% decrease in preparedness compared to the findings of their 2021 study.
As a result, cybercriminals, many of whom have the means to use Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) or Malware-as-a-Service (MaaS), recognize the average car dealership as a fairly low-hanging fruit with the potential of a quick payday.
According to Section 314.4 of the Safeguards Rule, there are nine elements that your company’s information security program must include:
Complying with the Safeguards Rule’s updated requirements is a daunting challenge, and few dealerships will have the in-house skills, experience, and time to interpret the law and implement all the necessary information security program elements.
To help guide auto dealers make the necessary investments and changes, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) published A Dealer Guide to The FTC Safeguards Rule, which contains a detailed explanation of the Safeguards Rule, its requirements, and a roadmap for achieving compliance.
Additionally, eSentire’s Managed Risk, Managed Detection & Response (MDR), and Digital Forensics and Incident Response portfolio offers many services that align with the Safeguards Rule’s requirements:
