This addition to STAR’s membership base is in direct response to the upcoming compliance deadlines facing automotive dealerships nationwide.

Greg Pleider, A2C’s chief executive officer, noted, “STAR provides a much-needed platform for businesses serving the automotive industry to discuss and refine the complexities of automotive retail through standardized best practices and technology.”

A2C has been chosen by the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) as a NADA Affinity Provider for its members. A2C delivers easy-to-use information security compliance solutions 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. A2C also offers users a detailed dashboard identifying areas of potential risk and offering remedial solutions for any identified compliance deficiencies.


“As we are all well aware, there have been significant changes to the GLBA Safeguard Rules. Automotive dealers must comply with these changes within the next six months. The first step to compliance with these new rules is an assessment of your business’s current compliance status. This is where A2C will help dealers right away” said Rafael Maldonado, chairman of STAR Standard. “Including A2C as members of STAR enables their compliance expertise to benefit multiple aspects of the automotive industry.”

“We look forward to contributing to STAR as it continues to tackle standards and guidance on consumer data privacy, security and cyber security while considering the regulatory and statutory requirements- both domestic and foreign,” stated Tony Haux, CiSO and CTO of A2C.
