The automotive industry’s intention in standardizing the audit procedure for information security was to establish an equally high level of security in the supply chain as well as to reduce the effort and expense for the partners involved by means of a uniform procedure.
But the introduction of an information security management system also offers us other advantages. On the one hand, we save time and money in the tendering process, as there is no need for an intensive examination of the security-relevant aspects that the client requires of us. In the future, TISAX certification will become the status quo in the industry, so that more and more customers will demand it from us. In addition, we will generally gain a clear competitive advantage over competitors who do not have TISAX. Overall, the collaboration with our customers and partners will be strengthened and simplified.
In recent months, we have intensively trained and sensitized our employees on this topic and will continue to do so in the future. After all, employee awareness is one of the success factors for increasing information security, alongside certain technical measures that we implemented as part of the project.
