In today’s uncertain economic climate, many Canadian dealerships are focusing almost all their discretionary spending on initiatives directly aligned with increasing sales. Running a dealership means striking a balance between heavily investing in moving more product, while continuing to invest in other departments less closely linked to sales, such as IT.
But how much is enough? One of the ever-present threats facing all small and medium-sized businesses including dealerships is cyber crime — and your dealership being targeted is a matter of when, not if. Investing in cyber security is like property insurance against hail or flooding: it’s necessary to protect the whole enterprise.
Your balancing act requires you to invest in cyber security in a cost-efficient way. And getting the most out of your cyber security spending always starts with an assessment.
