The problem with living in such a digitized world with technologies advancing by the minute, is the recurring issue of security. Today it seems that we are hearing about security breach after security breach involving major companies who have put our personal data at risk in some type of way. Rarely on the news do we ever hear about the smaller less known companies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t have security incidents either. It happens to everyone.
Car dealerships must play it smart and ensure that they have secure and compliant data security standards in place with anyone they share information with. Some people would call car dealers the “gold mine” for hackers since these agencies over time have acquired crucial information on their customers like credit card numbers, licenses, and basically anything someone would need to essentially hijack another person’s identity. Are we too focused on bigger companies like Facebook that we aren’t noticing these occurrences within smaller businesses or have hackers not figured it out? Data breaches are definitely a big concern no matter the size of the company and they happen from a number of reasons.
No matter the case, are you willing to pay the price?
We’re not sure what the future holds, but it wouldn’t hurt to think about new law or regulations that makes it necessary for car dealers and associations to provide a data removal service to help their customers avoid such a tragedy of all your information getting into the hands of the wrong person.
