Automotive Privacy Protection (APP)

Created for dealership compliance officers

Automotive Privacy Protection (APP) addresses the Safeguards Rule and Red Flags Rule mandates that every dealership have an Information Security Program (ISP) and an Identity Theft Prevention Program (ITPP) in place.

The APP program handbook provides step-by-step implementation instructions, including policy, auditing and role description templates, to guide the Corporate Compliance Officer in installing the dealership ISP and ITPP.

A virtual orientation with the Corporate Compliance Officer will cover regulation requirements, introduce the risk assessment checklist, policy development template, and online management and employee training.

Forms and resources for ongoing maintenance are available to download and customize at no additional cost. Discounts available for ADCO members and multiple rooftops.

Know the Facts!

It is an FTC violation of the Safeguards Rule and Red Flags Rule if your dealership doesn’t have an operational Information Security Program (ISP) and Identity Theft Prevention Program (ITPP) – even if a consumer’s information hasn’t been compromised or an identity theft hasn’t occurred.
