As elsewhere, information security in the automotive industry is becoming increasingly important for business success. For instance, suppliers and OEMs along the supply chain are constantly exchanging sensitive data that is critical to their success. Data loss caused by inadequate information security can lead to legal problems as well as to a loss of customer trust, and ultimately this brings economic harm.
For these reasons, many OEMs require a successfully completed TISAX assessment from their suppliers. This is thus a necessary competitive requirement for companies in the automotive industry. TÜViT supports customers through all project phases when introducing the TISAX standard: from assessing the current state of their ISMS to equipping them with means to handle all TISAX-related issues within their own organization.
Brief information: TISAX
TISAX had been developed and introduced as an information security standard by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (Verband der Automobilindustrie, VDA) in collaboration with the ENX Association.
The standard is based on the internationally recognized ISO 27001 standard, which is specific to the automotive industry in the context of TISAX and thus additionally covers the criteria of prototype protection, third-party linkages, and data protection.
On the TISAX platform, specially set up for the purpose, participants are able to exchange their assessment data. This creates a high degree of comparability and transparency.
TÜViT accompanies your business on its way to a successful TISAX assessment. As an experienced partner, we support you regardless of the level of implementation of your information security management system (ISMS).
Using a gap analysis, our experienced experts determine the current level of maturity of your company’s information security and the measures you still need to implement in order to successfully complete the TISAX assessment.
After completing the gap analysis, we support you with our TISAX monitoring, which includes all aspects of planning up to successful implementation of the measures. You can also make use of this monitoring independently of the gap analysis.
Additionally, we offer individual workshops to support you comprehensively in the area of information security.
