Cox Automotive is advising dealers to get smart on GDPR and ensure they understand new requirements before the regulation comes in to force in May.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will place strict new requirements on all businesses to ensure data is effectively managed including new regulations around reporting serious breaches of personal data.
Cox Automotive’s Data Solutions team is running a Series of webinars aimed at demystifying the new regulations, that are tailored to the specific needs of the automotive industry.
Ian Inman, Head of Privacy and Data Protection at Cox Automotive Data Solutions said: “We’re passionate about our customers and this extends to providing them with valuable insight wherever we can. We know that GDPR is a concern for dealers, but they may not have the time or in-house expertise to dedicate to it, so that’s why we’ve put this series of free webinars.”
The upcoming webinar, on 9 March, is the third in a series and will offer insight on: data breaches, incident management and mandatory data breach reporting, which is a new area of legislation.
Inman said: “For this session, we’ll offer practical tips and insight into data breach reporting with clear tips and key take outs that dealers can immediately apply.
“We’ll also offer practical advice around the softer side of navigating through the legislation including ideas on how to bring processes and procedures in-line with requirements.
“I will also share insider knowledge around what the regulatory body is looking for, what data protection law is and what it’s designed to achieve.”
Webinar attendee, Peter Dickey, Commercial Director of Citygate Holdings Ltd, said: “It’s really important that we’re ahead of GDPR and understand what needs to be in place prior to the legislation coming in to effect in May.
“The Cox Automotive webinar provided me with insider knowledge and practical expertise, I now feel as though my business has a good understanding of what we need to put in place to be ready for GDPR.”
