Simpro is proud to announce that it has obtained TISAX certification.
In an extremely innovative environment, where success depends on multiple factors, ensuring the highest security in information exchange is essential. The automotive industry indeed demands a comprehensive approach concerning information security within its intricate and extensive supply chains.
In the digital era, information security needs extend beyond traditional suppliers, involving marketing companies and other operators as well.
The primary focus lies in safeguarding:
- Projects or sensitive information related to design, prototypes, or confidential investment strategies.
- Big data and process data, linked to advanced digitalization concepts and autonomous vehicle development.
- Seamless interconnections within the supply chain network.
- The privacy of customer and end-user personal data.
What is TISAX certification?
TISAX® (Trusted Information Security Assessment eXchange) represents a cutting-edge evaluation model, specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the automotive sector. Accredited by the prestigious ENX Consortium (an organization that brings together leading automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and four national automotive industry associations), it primarily applies to first and second-tier suppliers but can be extended to more complex supply chains.
The main objectives are:
- Establish a standardized level of security for the automotive sector (based on the VDA-ISA model).
- Facilitate recognition of assessments, thereby reducing costs, efforts, and complexity for manufacturers and suppliers (assessment results can be shared with potential clients without the need for repeated assessments).
- Ensure comparability and quality of assessments.
- Promote the exchange of best practices and lessons learned.
- Allow participants to control the disclosure of results and the level of detail shared.
