CDK SecurityFirst

Help protect your pack by
putting SecurityFirst

When it comes to cybersecurity, it’s a jungle out there.
And in this jungle, your reputation is everything.

Why? Because the average cost of a data breach is $5.9M,[1] and 8 out of 10 consumers would not buy another car from a dealership where their personal information had been exposed in a data breach.[2] No dealership should go it alone.

When you partner with CDK Global, we’ll help you protect your data, financials and reputation by providing the expertise, partnership and industry-specific support that your business needs. In addition, we’ll help you provide more reliable and secure integration with our Third Party Access program and equip you with security solutions to help you better defend your network. Put SecurityFirst with CDK Global.


Expand your awareness


Did you know that hacking is an estimated $83B Market[3] and that 62% of security incidents happen to small businesses?[4] In addition to data threats, dealerships must comply with an increasing number of state and federal regulations.

The more you know, the more you can do to help protect your dealership. CDK Global shares your priorities, concerns and objectives around cybersecurity. When you partner with us, we can help provide your dealership with industry-specific awareness and support.

Effective cybersecurity requires a focus in three areas: people, process and technology. CDK Global will partner with you to help provide knowledge, insight and best practices to help you further enhance the cybersecurity of your dealership.

Enhance your visibility


What you don’t know not only can affect your business but may also impact the many customers that you do business with. When you partner with CDK Global, you can gain visibility into all data connections on your DMS with our free Dealer Data Exchange (DDX) solution. Designed to give dealers more visibility over data going to OEMs and third-party vendors, it is the first comprehensive data integration application offered by a leading DMS provider.

With DDX, you can zero in on non-authorized access activity. Non-authorized access doesn’t put limits on data access and can lead to data integrity issues, DMS performance degradation and unauthorized use of intellectual property.

You can help reduce these security risks and performance issues by working exclusively with vendors who are approved through our Third Party Access (3PA) Program.


Armor up your defenses


When it comes to the automotive industry, not all cybersecurity is the same or tailored to your business. We’ll partner with you, so you can leverage specific industry-related solutions such as Nuspire, Forcepoint and Fortinet.

Our Connect & Secure solution helps protect your dealership from viruses, hackers and other threats, and we’ll help you maximize your cash flow with our OpEx-based model. Because dealers experience cybersecurity risks and threats every day, we provide a fully managed Security Ops center and 24/7 watchdog service that analyzes, alerts and reports on security information (SIEM) in real time.

As part of your team, CDK Global will work with you to provide professional installation and ongoing support. Together, we can help you protect your data and reputation — easily and conveniently — so you can put SecurityFirst.
