Prevent revenue disruption and achieve compliance with 24/7 threat detection, investigation and containment that secures your auto dealership
According to the new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Safeguards Rule update, automotive dealerships are considered financial institutions since they are a business that engages in activities that are financial in nature by issuing and extending credit for the purposes of leasing or financing automobiles. As a result, all auto dealerships in the U.S. are required to comply with the FTC Safeguards Rule, which was first introduced in the 2003 Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), designed to protect sensitive customer information.
As a financial institution with access to highly valuable customer data, automotive dealers are expected to deploy and implement an information security program with administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to:
Many auto dealers may think of themselves as a local small business within a community.

In addition, there are two primary reasons that auto dealerships are attractive targets for cyberattacks:
It’s likely that cybersecurity is not top-of-mind for auto dealerships, rendering them poorly prepared to withstand or recover from a cyberattack. As a result, cybercriminals, many of whom use Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) or Malware-as-a-Service (MaaS), view the average dealership as low hanging fruit with the potential of a quick payday.
By June 9, 2023, new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Safeguards Rule requirements come into effect. All financial institutions – including automotive dealerships – must comply with the updated requirements and will be expected to have deployed and implemented an information security program with administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect customer information.
The Safeguards Rule defines “customer information” as any record containing nonpublic personal information about a customer of a financial institution, whether on paper, electronic, or other forms, 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:
GLBA applies to all financial institutions, including auto dealerships, and penalties for noncompliance include fines and imprisonment. Any auto dealership that is found to be in violation of the GLBA may be subject to:
