Greg Hubler Auto Group: Car Dealership Case Study


Greg Hubler Auto Group:

Greg Hubler has been in the car business his entire life. Following in the footsteps of his father, both his grandfathers, as well as two uncles, Greg grew up with a passion for the automotive industry and decided to make it his lifelong career. After graduating from Indiana University, Greg spent time as the General Manager at Hubler Mazda, guiding the dealership to a record level of success in both sales and service. His success pushed him to start his own dealership, and that’s where Greg eventually turned one store into something more, and the Greg Hubler Auto Group was established.


“The success of our project with Core Managed goes beyond meeting deadlines. It sets the tone for a lasting partnership built on trust and a shared commitment to excellence. Looking forward to continued success together.”

Navigating in an Evolving Landscape
Facing the intricate demands of the automotive cybersecurity landscape, Greg Hubler Auto Group sought to comply with new 2023 FTC regulations,
specific tech requirements tied to construction projects, and the technological intricacies accompanying two recent dealership acquisitions. One of the primary challenges was adhering to the FTC’s Red Flags
compliance, necessitating rigorous Penetration testing and vulnerability scans. The client, while embracing our proactive cybersecurity measures, required rapid onboarding of a certification company, Comply Auto,
to facilitate timely compliance.

Proactive Communication & Streamlined Compliance
To address this multifaceted challenge, our team prioritized transparent communication with both Comply Auto and Hubler staff. Leveraging our existing high-security standards, we demonstrated that the Greg Hubler Auto Group was already held to stringent cybersecurity practices. Implementing FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls allowed us to utilize a single Penetration testing device across all locations through IPsec tunnels, reducing costs. Throughout the process, we proactively addressed issues detected during scans, further fortifying the network.
