Automotive Ecosystem Data Sharing Principles released by CADA
September 12, 2022
Although data sharing between OEMs, auto dealers and the vehicles they sell is an important part of the industry today, the complexities of the integration of these information systems into one automotive information ecosystem can make the system vulnerable to outside cyber threats.
“Such data sharing can allow for an integrated customer experience and promotes safe and efficient operation, repair, and maintenance of vehicles. However, data sharing also raises complex compliance issues, as well as issues of consumer trust,” said CADA in a new release. Further to CADA’s Dealer Guide to Data Sharing, CADA has provided its dealer members with a comprehensive list of Automotive Ecosystem Data Sharing Principles, meant to help inform the data sharing choices of Canadian dealers. CADA acknowledged and thanked its counterpart in the US, NADA, for its permission to adapt the principles they had developed.
The Principles include details on five key points:
- Data Is Only Shared Pursuant to Clear, Compliant, Written Data Agreements
- Data Is Only Shared Securely
- Data Is Only Shared with Clear Accountability and Protection
- Data Is Only Shared with Third Parties in a Transparent and Compliant Manner
- Dealers and OEMs Agree to Establish an Ongoing Structure to Continue Working Together
