NavInfo Europe has successfully passed the TISAX® certification according to Assessment Level 2 Information with High Protection Needs & Data Protection.
TISAX®(Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) is a testing and exchange mechanism for the information security of enterprises. It was founded on the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) catalogue of ISA (Information Security Assessment) requirements, largely established on the basis of the international ISO/IEC 27001 standard in 2017. The Automotive industry is witnessing a fast development era of digitization and globalization, but the internal and external risks to information security are also increasing. TISAX® concerns the secure processing of information from business partners, the protection of prototypes, and data protection in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for potential business transactions between automobile manufacturers and their service providers or suppliers.
In 2020, we passed the TISAX AL2 for the first time and in the latest assessment, the objective of Handling of Personal Data according to article 28 GDPR (“processor”) has also been added to the scope. With the TISAX certification, our customers will receive the highest level of data handling and processing in a standardized way. We are aware of how important working with personal data is and approach this process seriously for all our customers. As a service provider for OEMs and Tier1&2 companies in the Automotive value chain, NavInfo Europe has always put quality at the forefront of its processes and has continued to adhere to industry standards such as ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 27001, Automotive SPICE®, etc. In addition, we are preparing for the ISO 27701 audit, a framework for data privacy that builds on ISO 27001.
Achieving TISAX® certification for the second time makes us very proud. With everything we do, we strive to provide the highest quality for our customers and partners. TISAX® compliance proves our dedication to providing secure data handling and processing in a standardized way”, Michael Schürdt, Managing Director of NavInfo Europe.
