Anyone involved in the automotive supply chain has to meet high standards in terms of IT security. These are tested and assessed by the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry) in accordance with TISAX®. In May 2021, nexnet passed this assessment for “information with high protection requirements and the data protection module”.
Who and what is behind the TISAX® label?
TISAX® is an acronym for Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchangeand represents standards defined by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) for the highest level of IT security, which are assessed as part of an assessment. These standards must be met not only by automotive manufacturers and suppliers, but also by service providers and software producers.
What is the difference to ISO 27001 certification?
In contrast to TISAX®, ISO 27001 is a general standard for information security and applies across all industries and internationally. Here, requirements are placed on a general information security management system. In the TISAX® assessment, on the other hand, additional industry-specific requirements of the automotive industry, such as prototype protection, are tested. Thus, TISAX® has more requirement areas, but is not subject to any international standard.
|!||In general, assessment means the information security review of a company, which is concluded with an “Assessment Report” and, if the review is successful, with a label. This is also the difference to certification, which describes the process of obtaining a management system certificate.|
