Meeting information security requirements The TISAX® (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) certification is a key requirement vendors must accomplish in order to do business with European automotive organizations.
Nag Chandrashekar, Chief Product Officer at Degreed explained: “Automotive manufacturers have a critical need to upskill and prepare their workers for emerging innovations such as EVs, automation, robotics and more, while complying with information security requirements. Pursuing the TISAX® qualification enables Degreed to support automotive companies by putting learning at the center of solving their critical business challenges.”
Rigorous assessment The rigorous assessment process required to obtain TISAX® qualification indicates that Degreed has an established information security program with processes integrated across its entire system. The TISAX® qualification requires that processes are used sustainably and actively over an extended period, signaling the maturity of Degreed’s established cybersecurity processes.
Maturity at the core The assessment included an evidentiary based on-site audit carried out by an independent and certified TISAX audit provider. It was a two-year long comprehensive process, which included key aspects and criteria of the internationally recognized ISO 27001 standard with additional criteria specific to the automotive sector. The process is designed to validate that Degreed’s policies, standards, and procedures are aligned with ISO 27001 standards.
