TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) is a security assessment and certification process for automotive suppliers. The certification is used to evaluate and ensure the information security capabilities of companies in the automotive sector.

With TISAX, the automotive industry has set its standard for assessing the information and cyber security. It is optimized to the automotive industry need to scale to large multi-tier value creation networks and provides mutual recognition of assessment results.



There are several challenges associated with TISAX certification:

Complex requirements

TISAX has extensive and complex security requirements that can be difficult to understand and implement. Companies may struggle to meet these requirements and may need help from experts to achieve certification.


Resource constraints

Implementing the security measures required for TISAX certification can be resource-intensive and time-consuming. This can be especially challenging for small or medium-sized businesses.


Technical difficulties

Companies may face technical challenges in implementing the necessary security controls, particularly if their existing systems are not well-suited to the TISAX requirements.



The cost of TISAX certification can be significant, and this may be a challenge for companies with limited budgets.



TISAX certification must be maintained, and companies must continually evaluate and improve their security controls to stay certified. This can be a challenge, as the threat landscape is constantly evolving and new risks emerge.

Overall, TISAX certification requires a substantial investment of time, resources, and expertise, but it is considered an important aspect of information security for companies operating in the automotive sector.”

How will we work ?

  • Have a first discussion with the project responsible from the customer’s side.

In this discussion we will establish which are the departments involved and who is responsible for each area.

  • Set up 2-4h interviews with the responsible of each area. In this process we fill in our questionnaire and calculate the security maturity for each security control.

This process can take several days, depending on the company size and availability of the responsible persons.

  • Create a report in Powerpoint (Executive summary) and Excel (Details about the findings) after the security questionnaire ist finalized.

This process can take 2-3 days, depending on how complexity of the company and the findings.

Our report contains the following:

    • Results of the analysis
      • Risks
      • Recommendations
        • for improvements of the basic cyber security.
        • for additional steps to be taken in order to pass the official audit.
  • Present the findings in a meeting with the management of the company and, ideally, with all responsible persons .
