About TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange)
TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) is a framework for information security assessments developed by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). Companies in the automotive industry use it to assess the information security of their suppliers and service providers. The TISAX framework provides a standardized approach for conducting assessments and exchanging assessment results between companies, which helps to reduce the time and resources required for each evaluation. TISAX assessments are based on the international standard ISO/IEC 27001 and cover data protection, access controls, physical security, and business continuity. The TISAX framework is becoming increasingly important for companies in the automotive industry as they seek to ensure the safety of their supply chain and comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
Does your company need it?
TISAX is mandatory for all companies in the automotive supply chain, including suppliers, manufacturers, and service providers. To participate in the supply chain, companies must meet the TISAX requirements and pass an assessment by an accredited TISAX auditor.
