Information security for the automotive industry
In early 2017 VDA established TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange), a new assessment and exchange mechanism. The dedicated TISAX online platform is designed to support cross-company recognition of information security assessments in the automotive industry. By sharing their ISA results online on TISAX, companies enable OEMs to verify for themselves whether a service provider or supplier has already successfully completed the assessment. In addition, TISAX can be used to commission audit providers such as TÜV SÜD to carry out an assessment.
TÜV SÜD’s free on-demand webinar will help you understand the basic concepts and approach of TISAX and how it will affect your business.
TÜV SÜD is currently undergoing the accreditation process and is allowed to carry out TISAX assessments.
There are three assessment levels:
Level 1: Standard suppliers only need to complete the ISA questionnaire and publish this self-assessment in TISAX.
Level 2: In case of more complex suppliers, the self-assessment will be followed by random plausibility checks by telephone by an approved audit provider.
Level 3: Suppliers who handle highly sensitive external data undergo on-site inspection by an approved audit provider based on their self-assessment.
