Information security requirements
Business processes depend mainly on information and information systems and their secure processing. Information security is more than just securing the technical infrastructure - it means security of the entire information flow. This is a central task of corporate management.
The networking and globalization of the digital future in the automotive industry has numerous advantages, but the internal and external risks for companies are also increasing. In order to counter these, suitable protective measures must be established. The digitization of business processes across company boundaries therefore requires a comparable level of information security for all those involved, which is guaranteed throughout the entire value chain.
Experts from the automotive industry work together in the VDA's Information Security Working Group to develop common standards and appropriate protective measures. A major result of this cooperation is an industry standard for information security assessments, the VDA Information Security Assessment (ISA) catalogue.
The VDA recommends that companies involved in the automotive industry's value chain establish information security based on VDA ISA.
