Simplifying TISAX Compliance: Classification

If you’re an automotive supplier or service provider, you likely work on sensitive projects with your partners, requiring a daily exchange of sensitive information. Your partners need to know that you’re handling their sensitive information with care, protecting it from theft, loss, and manipulation.

Many information security regulations recommend the use of classification to ensure that sensitive information is appropriately protected and handled, and TISAX standards are no different.

Question 1.3.2 in the VDA ISA (the security assessment used in the TISAX process) asks, “To what extent are information assets classified and managed in terms of their protection needs?” Specific requirements include the use of a consistent, policy-based classification scheme and the classification of data based on criteria such as value, confidentiality, and legal requirements.

The Value of Automation

PKWARE offers classification capabilities to help companies determine what to protect and how to handle appropriately. But unlike others, PKWARE’s endpoint manager provides automated, discovery-driven classification. This means that every time a new file is created, the system automatically scans the file for sensitive information, and it applies the appropriate label based on your organization’s definitions.

PKWARE’s unique automated security workflow uses your organization’s security policies to determine what content it should look for. When a file matches the definitions for sensitive data, the appropriate label is applied to the file—with no action required by the user. This takes the burden off of employees to make decisions on how files should be classified, while ensuring that your classification rules are applied consistently and accurately across your entire organization, which, by the way, is precisely what the TISAX security assessment requires.

Simpler Process, Better Results

PKWARE makes it easier to define and implement a classification policy. Instead of having to create paper policies, develop and deliver employee training, and perform regular audits to ensure the accuracy of your organizations’ classification labels, companies can meet TISAX standards for classification by simply creating and publishing policies within the management console of PKWARE’s platform.
