Benefits of VDA ISA
VDA information security requirements
The term TISAX®* stands for ‘Trusted Information Security Assessment eXchange’. TISAX® describes a mechanism that allows companies to share the results of an information security assessment with legitimate interested parties via a secure online platform. The operator ENX Association acts as the governance organisation, accredits the audit providers and monitors the quality of the implementation and the assessment results.
The assessment is based on the VDA Information Security Assessment. The defined requirements can be roughly divided into the following categories:
The information security requirements describe the structure and operation of an information security management system and strongly resemble the Control Objectives and Controls in ISO27001:2017 (however, compliance can also be achieved using other ISMS methodologies).
