An inter-company exchange mechanism based on Information Security Assessment (ISA)

Information security is one of the key elements in the automotive industry. A service provider or a supplier working in the automotive industry must provide an evidence to its customers, at regular intervals, confirming its compliance towards the standards and regulations pertaining to information security. In the past, this evidence was provided through the Information Security Assessment (ISA) developed by Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) aka the German Association of the Automotive Industry. However, individual suppliers and service providers had to undergo multiple audits for their clients through ISA. This prompted VDA to introduce Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange (TISAX). TISAX is a common assessment and exchange mechanism in the automotive industry that brings-in standardization and quality assurance and helps to avoid redundant audits.

To support organisations in fulfilling TISAX requirements and improve their understanding with regards to the assessment requirements, TÜV SÜD offers TISAX assessment services and a foundation training course.
