Compli Releases "Red Flags" Toolkit

August 26, 2008

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Compli, a provider of on-demand dealership compliance management software for U.S. auto dealers, has released its "Red Flags" Toolkit developed in collaboration with Michael Benoit, a partner at Hudson Cook LLP, a provider of sales and F&I legal compliance services in the automotive industry.

The "Red Flags" Toolkit is available at no extra charge to current and future customers of Compli's Dealership Compliance Management System (DCMS). The kit will give dealerships the tools they need to fully comply with all elements of the expansive new "Red Flags" regulation.

Compli's "Red Flags" Toolkit includes online tools, legal content and trainings that automate logistics and reduce the costs associated with complying with the legally mandated requirements of the "Red Flags Rules." The toolkit has these specific components:

· Implementing Your "Red Flags" Program - "What should a dealer think about when constructing their ID theft program?"

· "Red Flags" Program Overview Training – How to Implement a "Red Flags" Program

· "Red Flags" Risk Assessment Form - "What is your dealership currently doing to address ID theft?"

· Reference - Sample "Red Flags" Policies and Procedures

· Dealership "Red Flags" and Responses Reference

· Identity Theft Incident Report Form

· Annual "Red Flags" Audit Form

· Online Training – Overview of "Red Flags"

· Policy – Identity Theft "Red Flags" Policy for Employees

· Policy – "Red Flags" Program Policy

· Customer Identification Checklist

· "Red Flag" Detection Checklist

"We released our initial ‘Red Flags’ Program in February 2008 to introduce the topic to our clients and raise awareness of the extensive requirements," said Lon Leneve, president of Compli. "Now we are releasing a fully updated version, which includes a robust Toolkit that provides our clients with all the tools they need to fully comply with the law by November 1st. Though critically important, ‘Red Flags’ is really just one more puzzle piece in a continuing "good faith" effort that should address all pieces of the compliance puzzle. Compli clients have access to a vast number of critical compliance programs that address legally mandated requirements, and they can continue to count on Compli to add more programs as the regulations keep coming."

"The ‘Red Flags Rule’ is just one of many compliance obligations imposed on dealers. In assisting Compli in developing the ‘Red Flags’ Toolkit, we focused on building a resource that would walk dealers through the steps. Dealers will still need to be thoughtful in their compliance efforts, but the Toolkit should take much of the stress out of designing and documenting an Identity Theft Prevention Program," said Benoit, a partner at Hudson Cook LLP.
