NADA brings in Accelerate2Compliance as Affinity Provider Program
The National Automobile Dealers Association is looking to help members keep their information secure at the dealership.
On Wednesday, NADA said Accelerate2Compliance (A2C) has been chosen as a vendor within the association’s Affinity Provider Program.
NADA noted that A2C offers what’s designed to be an easy-to-use information security compliance solution through the A2C Portal, a turnkey cloud-based subscription to achieve, manage, and help maintain information security regulatory compliance requirements with a full suite of necessary tools.
NADA mentioned that A2C also offers users a detailed dashboard identifying areas of potential risk and remedial solutions for the compliance deficiencies identified.
“NADA members are focused more than ever on protecting their business and ensuring that they are compliant with data security regulatory requirements,” NADA president and chief executive officer Mike Stanton said in a news release. “The A2C portal is designed as a dealer friendly and easy to use cloud-based tool that allows our members to efficiently manage and stay on top of the ever-increasing security compliance requirements at both the federal and state levels.”
NADA recapped that its Affinity Provider program is tailored to provide members with access to discounted pricing for select vendor products and services that help dealers address the issues and opportunities that are critical to their businesses.
While NADA serves as the clearinghouse, the association said Affinity providers offer products and services that are responsive to dealer demands, and providers are carefully selected once NADA has examined a number of vendor products and services.
The service provider acknowledged that dealers are consistently challenged with achieving privacy and data-security regulatory compliance requirements as they guard against ever-increasing information security threats. A2C’s all-in-one cloud-based software solution is designed for dealers and their vendors to efficiently and cost-effectively build and manage their required information security program.
“We know the last thing our auto dealer clients want to see is a data breach that could harm them financially and reputationally, which is why they are constantly working to keep their information security programs compliant,” A2C chief executive officer Greg Pfleider said in the news release.
“Staying on top of privacy and data security regulatory requirements, including significantly expanded requirements found in the final amendments to the FTC’s Safeguard Rule, only complicate this task, which is why we built our A2C Portal that makes managing these expanded requirements simple and easy,” Pfleider went on to say.
