4 Simple rules to prevent cyber phishing attacks at your dealership

If you do business with other dealers or brokers on line, your dealership could fall prey to cyberphishing, where someone appears legit, but is actually scraping your database and all your customers’ sensitive information in the process. In fact, cyber phishing is run today by big business, not some random hacker; they’re masters of grabbing sensitive information from your database through e-mail.
That’s why auto dealerships across the country are falling prey to these aggressive cyber phishers. You see, once they have your data, they generally hold it for ransom; some dealers have paid $250,000 to get their data back. Ask any dealer that’s had to deal with it: If you’ve been hacked, it will bring your business to its knees.
It’s one of those quietly growing threats to auto dealerships; it’s something you don’t hear people talking about often. Yet it’s crippling. It’s also why CADA is hosting an important webinar next Wednesday, October 10 from 10 – 11:30 a.m., 4 Simple rules to prevent cyber phishing attacks at your dealership.
This webinar is designed for dealers, general managers, sales managers, controllers and CFOs. And because it IS a webinar, you might want your sales team to sit in on it, too. For more info on the webinar, click here.

New! FCRA Summary of Consumer Rights Document
Effective Immediately
If you conduct background checks on applicants or employees, you’ll need to use an updated “A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)” document. This change was one of the results of recent high-profile data breaches and Congress passing the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act.

  • Start using the new FCRA consumer rights summary by Friday, September 21, 2018.
  • The updated document informs people of their right to freeze their credit and obtain fraud alerts.
  • The new document will be available in HRDrive®. Find it in the Toolkit tab > Documents > Hiring Documents > FCRA Rights. You can also download it now.
  • If you use HRDrive as part of your integrated hiring process, the correct form is automatically used.

Record Number of Security Breaches in 2018

There have been several high-profile data security and data exposure breaches in 2018 — everything from Russian power grid hacking and more, to 300 universities in the U.S. and abroad being infiltrated, to Equifax’s massive breach that impacted 2.4 million Americans. The United States Congress responded by passing the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act.

Among other provisions, this legislation requires credit bureaus to provide fraud alerts, free national security freezes, and freeze releases for consumers. These measures may thwart identity thieves and hackers from opening unauthorized accounts in consumers’ names.

Where Employers Factor In…
As part of this same federal law, background screening providers and employers that conduct background checks were also given marching orders.

Under an “interim final rule,” the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released an updated FCRA consumer rights summary on Wednesday, September 12 and gave employers a little over a week to adjust course.

What is the FCRA Consumer Rights Summary?
If you use a third-party provider or if an employer is going to take adverse action against an applicant or employee (a.k.a., decline to hire the applicant) as a result of something revealed in their background check, the applicant or employee needs to receive a FCRA consumer rights summary. It explains a person’s rights to obtain and dispute information contained within a consumer report (i.e., background check).

What Changed?
The CFPB added 3 additional paragraphs to the FCRA consumer rights summary. They explain people’s right to place a security freeze on their credit reports. The new text also talks about initial, 1-year fraud alerts and extended fraud alerts, which require parties using credit reports to take additional steps to verify someone’s identity.

What Do You Need to Do to Comply?
  • Start using the new document by Friday, September 21.
  • Ensure that your background screening provider is using the right version of the FCRA consumer rights summary.
  • Download the FCRA Rights in HRDrive in the Toolkit tab > Documents > Hiring Documents or right now.
  •  If you use HRDrive as part of your integrated hiring process, the correct form is automatically used.
  • If your state has ban the box legislation in play, follow all applicable regulations.
For additional information regarding the FCRA consumer rights summary, please contact your background screening provider or KPA’s Client Success Center at 800-486-0400 or email

Don’t Let Your Business Go Up In Smoke

Fire Prevention Week – October 7-13, 2018
Every year, fires costs business owners billions of dollars—and that number doesn’t even begin to measure the impact fires have on the business itself and the families of employees who are injured or killed by the blaze.
National Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, 2018, is a great reminder that preventing workplace fires is not something to be done yearly, monthly, or even weekly—it should be a daily activity. Investigations reveal that most business fires can be prevented if workers consistently pay attention to a few, very specific hazards. To help you and your employees make it home safely each day, your Federated Insurance team is excited to provide a customizable fire prevention checklist you can use to review your business’s fire prevention techniques. (The latest full version of Adobe Reader is required to open and use the customizable checklist.)
Made available to all association members through our partnership with Federated, the checklist helps you identify and implement high priority fire prevention practices that can significantly impact your business. It’s designed to also allow businesses to add checkpoints for the unique risks and exposures they face. Scan the QR code above or go to to access the sample checklist and view a video that shows the reality of business fires and discusses the need to make fire safety everyone’s responsibility.
Federated clients can find more fire prevention resources by logging on to Federated’s Shield Network®, or contacting Federated’s Risk Management Resource Center at 1.888.333.4949 or At Federated Insurance, It’s Our Business to Protect Yours®.
