Keeping Your Data Secure

By Ashton Azizi - June 16, 2022

Data security has become a hot topic over the last few years as companies are adopting a digital strategy and taking their business to the cloud. It feels like every week there is a story about data breaches that put both a company’s and its customers’ valuable information at risk. To combat this, it is the responsibility of everyone to find ways to keep their data secure.

In the car industry, the burden of this responsibility falls on the hands of the dealership and its employees. Here are some tips to help you prepare for potential security breaches and keep your information from getting into the wrong hands.

A Compliant DMS:

Your DMS will have most of your vital data, therefore, it is important to choose a DMS that is compliant and puts your security at the forefront of its service. With Deal Pack, you will not have to worry about exposure of any of your sensitive information. Deal Pack is now on AWS, making it compliant based on Amazon’s policies. This ensures your data is secured to the best possible degree and supported on one of the best security standards in the world. You can read more about AWS Compliance offerings here.

Keep Important Data Close at Hand

Important company information like usernames and passwords to the different services your company uses should be kept confidential and not shared with anyone. Based on the service, credentials would need to be provided to the highest employee level possible to prevent it from getting into the wrong hands. Passwords should be changed on a set basis (i.e every couple of months) or any time an employee who has knowledge of those credentials leaves the company. This insures you from any potential destructive activities from a disgruntled former employee.

Work on a Secure Network

Consulting a third-party IT company and setting up a secured network for your employees to work on will give you the best results on protections for anything outside your DMS. Restricting work outside of your network will help better keep track of activities and ensure you do not put your customer’s data at risk.

Build a Knowledgeable Work Environment

It is also crucial to convey the importance of data security to your employees. Through trainings, internal policies, and open communication, let your employees know the importance of keeping your data secure. Encourage them to change their password on a consistent basis and make sure to make them knowledgeable of the consequences it could lead to if proper measures are not followed.
