TISAX is an assessment and exchange mechanism for the information security of enterprises and allows recognition of assessment results among the participants. As information security is increasingly becoming a precondition for cooperation between companies - not only within the automotive industry where TISAX originated, but also beyond - the standard makes it easier to evaluate the information security of potential partners. In-depth research into the information security policy of a potential partner is therefore no longer necessary. The TISAX standard has a basis in the well-known ISO/IEC 27001 and 27002 standards. Active participants are assessed and provide the respective assessment result to other participants via TISAX Exchange.
