Reduce the risk of accidents in your motor trade business: Cybersecurity

Cyber Crime

From protecting customer data to hacking on-board computers in cars, there's lots to consider.

As organisations across industries join in the race to ‘go digital’, it has become increasingly important to implement top cybersecurity measures. You must ensure the protection of sensitive data, such as customer information, commercial online banking systems and employee records. Use these tips:

  • Ensure you are compliant with the GDPR. Use the ICO website for additional information.
  • Make sure your organisation uses top cybersecurity practices, such as data encryption, strong passwords, antivirus and malware protection, and frequent software updates.
  • Train staff on best practices, such as detecting phishing scams and reporting a breach. Only allow qualified employees access to sensitive data.
  • Enforce specific cyber-security policies, such as a bring your own device (BYOD) policy, safe internet/email usage policy and a data breach response policy.
