TISAX® stands for "Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange" and is a standard for an information security management system in the automotive industry. TISAX® is a registered trademark of the ENX association, a consortium of European automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and associations responsible for establishing and maintaining the industry standard for TISAX® certification.

In 2017, the German Association of the Automotive Industry, or VDA (German: Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V.) initiated TISAX® to create a uniform standard that guides all companies in the industry. This standard is defined by a comprehensive list of questions and serves as a basis for assessing and certifying information security management systems (ISMS). 

Meaning of the TISAX® label

A valid TISAX® label is a prerequisite for working with a supplier of several automotive manufacturers. The certificate, which must be renewed every three years, is recognized worldwide as proof of comprehensive information security management in companies. The TISAX® audit is a demanding multi-stage process. The results are published on the ENX portal, to which only authorized companies have access. This ensures the confidentiality of the assessments.

Benefits of an information security management system (ISMS)

By establishing and maintaining an ISMS, parson AG is committed to the highest level of professionalism and competence in handling sensitive data. Our focus on confidentiality, availability, and integrity of information not only brings internal benefits, but also creates significant added value for our customers:

  • With an effective ISMS, we ensure comprehensive protection of our customers' information, protecting sensitive data from unauthorized access, loss, or manipulation.

  • We minimize potential security risks and incidents by systematically identifying, assessing, and addressing them. We mitigate potential threats proactively.

  • In addition, we constantly monitor changing legislation to ensure that our ISMS always meets current requirements.

  • Our ISMS is characterized by traceable processes that provide our customers with a well-structured and transparent environment for their data. 

  • We prioritize open communication and transparency of our security measures and processes to our partners, suppliers, and customers.

TISAX® and ISO 27001

TISAX® is an extension of the ISO 27001 standard that has been specifically adapted for the automotive industry. TISAX® and ISO 27001 have many similarities. TISAX® adds modules for data protection and risk management. While ISO 27001 can be limited to certain areas of a company, TISAX® covers the entire company to be audited.

in 2024, parson AG intends to renew its certification according to ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 in addition to the existing TISAX® label.
