Information security throughout the entire lifecycle can be classified as an important topic in the daily functioning of an organisation. The automotive industry is no exception, and here too it is advisable for suppliers and service providers to reassure customers that their information is safe. As a consequence, the TISAX Standard has been published.
What is TISAX?
The TISAX standard was developed by the registered trademark of the European Automotive Industry Association ENX. TISAX represents a certain standardisation of the level of security in the automotive sector. It also includes the key criteria of ISO 27001. Organisations in the automotive industry must prove compliance with the security criteria every three years.
Why do you need TISAX?
Assurance that their information is properly secured is important to clients. The German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) publishes a catalogue that contains key requirements and criteria to ensure the necessary level of security. Compliance with the VDA requirements can be demonstrated by TISAX certification. TISAX certification increases the level of security for organizations and thus their performance. TISAX is used to standardize and also to mutually recognize ISMS auditing in accordance with ISO 27001.
