A Cybercrime Epidemic is Driving an Evolution in Dealer IT.  Are You Prepared? - Sponsored By Helion Technologies

Identification: AUT19SS1

Many believe that cybercrime is the biggest threat to every business in the world. By 2021 cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually. Consumers are fed up with entrusting their data to organizations incapable of keeping this data secure. As a result, new consumer data privacy legislation has either been drafted or enacted. These laws will force businesses to rethink their current IT environments or suffer legal action. For many dealers this represents an evolutionary inflection point of great significance. Dealers who resist this change risk lawsuit, theft, and damage to the reputations they have established. 

In this session, attendees will learn:

  1. How we got here and what to expect in the next few years.
  2. The IT best practices of an "evolved" dealer and the related benefits. 
  3. Practical advice for beginning an IT metamorphosis.
