SS1. A cybercrime epidemic is driving an evolution in dealer IT.  Are you prepared? Sponsored By Helion Technologies
Field(s) of Study: Information Technology
Knowledge Level: Overview (1-2 years in the profession) | CPE: 1

Speaker: Erik Nachbahr, CISSP, President and CEO, Helion Technologies Inc.


Many believe that cybercrime is the biggest threat to every business in the world. By 2021 cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually. Consumers are fed up with entrusting their data to organizations incapable of keeping this data secure. As a result, new consumer data privacy legislation has either been drafted or enacted. These laws will force businesses to rethink their current IT environments or suffer legal action. For many dealers this represents an evolutionary inflection point of great significance. Dealers who resist this change risk lawsuit, theft, and damage to the reputations they have established. In this session, attendees will learn:

  • How we got here and what to expect in the next few years
  • The IT best practices of an "evolved" dealer and the related benefits
  • Practical advice for beginning an IT metamorphosis

The metamorphosis will likely continue, with opportunities, challenges, and disruptions such as the advent of autonomous vehicles, ever-increasing regulatory oversight, shifts in consumer demographics and demand, consolidation, and ubiquitous factory control over dealership decision-making and operations. Factors such as these, and many others, may result in the necessity that dealership business valuations be obtained, whether in connection with buy-sell agreements, shareholder disputes, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), estate planning and gifting, financing, or some other context. Awareness of business valuation basics -- and, especially factors, unique to the industry -- enable the interested party to credibly understand and critique valuation experts' assumptions and approaches. This session will explore these dynamics.
