Life in the Cloud: What Heavy Equipment Dealers Need to Know About Cybersecurity
Webinar Description
Your business is more reliant on the cloud than ever before. With COVID-19, your dealership has likely migrated applications to enable remote employees, original equipment manufacturers (OEM) communications, contactless selling and mobile applications. This transition to the cloud can expose your dealership to cyber risk that aging, basic security controls aren’t designed to identify or mitigate. Threat actors know this. They’re looking to leverage vulnerabilities in employees, software and hardware to find a way to infiltrate your organization. In your effort to modernize how you do business, it’s equally important to modernize your security controls. Safeguard valuable assets such as financial information, sensitive customer information and your brand reputation. Join Jeff Jenkins from CDK Global Heavy Equipment and John Ayers, Nuspire’s Chief Strategy Product Officer (CSPO) for practical, no-fluff insights including:

• The types of threat actors targeting dealerships
• Top attack methods
• Best practices for reducing cyber risk

CDK Global Heavy Equipment has recently partnered with Nuspire to help revolutionize the cybersecurity experience for its dealer base. Check out this webinar to learn how you can protect your business, employees, customers, and partners.
