SGS Formally Recognized as a TISAX® Assessment Provider

May 24, 2022
We are delighted to announce that we have been formally recognized as a TISAX® assessment provider, giving us the green light to further drive information security in the automotive industry.

Our German team has worked determinedly to achieve this official status from the ENX Association. ENX consists of automobile manufacturers, suppliers and national automotive associations, which aim to enable and simplify secure and trustworthy collaboration over industrial value-added networks.

Remaining Competitive in the Digital Age

Organizations that want to remain competitive in the digital age must pay close attention to information security. This is particularly true for the automotive industry, where massive amounts of confidential data are exchanged daily.

What is TISAX®?

TISAX® helps to protect data by ensuring integrity and availability in automotive business processes, including manufacturing. A dedicated online platform enables the exchange of information security assessment results within the sector.

A TISAX® assessment is based on Information Security Assessment (ISA) requirements. Developed by the Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA) and Volkswagen, ISA is a catalog of criteria for assessing the information security of automotive supply chain organizations, such as vehicle manufacturers, service providers and suppliers. It is based on ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 but includes additional requirements.

ENX maintains ISA, as well as the audit provider criteria and assessment requirements (TISAX® ACAR). It also approves audit providers and monitors the quality of implementation and assessment results. ENX is supported by the TISAX® Committee, comprised of manufacturers, suppliers and associations.

Advantages of a TISAX® Assessment

Successfully passing a TISAX® assessment allows your organization to share the TISAX® label with business partners. This helps you to highlight your information security status to:

  • Save time and costs by avoiding assessment duplication, based on customer requirements
  • Gain a competitive edge by fulfilling stringent requirements and creating customer trust
  • Protect critical data and reduce liabilities
