Basic information about the TISAX® assessment
In addition, the responsible bodies at the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) have created the conditions for establishing the joint assessment and exchange mechanism under the name TISAX® (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange). TISAX® is a registered trademark of the ENX Association. The Association of European automotive manufacturers, automotive suppliers and automotive associations monitors the quality of TISAX® assessments and controls the approval of TISAX® audit service providers.
Why is a TISAX® assessment useful for my company?
- Duplicate and multiple assessments by different customers can be avoided.
- Cross-company recognition of information security assessments for TISAX® participants
- High reliability of results due to the harmonized VDA ISA test catalog
- Enhanced stakeholder trust with TISAX® label
What are the requirements of TISAX®?
The industry-specific VDA ISA catalog is available in version 5.0 since July 2020. This version has been mandatory for all TISAX® audits since October 2020. The requirements from the international and cross-industry standard for information security ISO 27001, in turn, contribute among other things to companies looking beyond the protection of IT technical systems - namely to all corporate assets to be protected.
How does TISAX® work?
A company can also take on both participant roles. Anyone wishing to participate inTISAX® as an Information Contributor must take the following four main steps:
- 1. Register online at www.enx.com/TISAX
- 2. Select an ENX-approved audit service provider such as DQS India
- 3. Undergo the aTISAX® assessment
- 4. Exchange the audit results on theTISAX® online platform.
How does a TISAX® assessment work?
The requirements of the scope and the assessment level must be defined by you in advance, for example "with or without prototype protection".
As aTISAX® participant, you must first register online, after which the scope ID is assigned by ENX (an annual service fee applies).
In the first step, you select an approved audit service provider. In the second step, there is a kick-off, the document review (self-assessment, not on-site) and a subsequent assessment (Level 2: not on-site, Level 3: on-site).
The findings from the audit are recorded in an interim report. In the event of non-conformities, measures to be implemented are agreed upon. If necessary, the implementation of measures is determined within an agreed period of time.
After closing the non-conformities, an effectiveness check is carried out by means of an audit.
The final report is posted online on theTISAX® portal. This lists your company as a participant with the corresponding audit label.
What does the TISAX® assessment cost?
The protection goals, for example, are about whether you want to include topics such as prototype protection or data protection in the assessment. If you want to get involved in theTISAX® procedure, talk to DQS India, your approved audit service provider, as early as possible. This is the only way we can determine the correct calculation for the assessment scope, and provide you with a reliable quote for the cost of yourTISAX® certification.
