Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange (TISAX)

TISAX, or Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange, is a certification program for information security in the automotive industry. Based on the Information Security Assessment (ISA) security requirements created by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) , TISAX provides an industry-specific security framework for assessing information security for the wide landscape of suppliers, OEMs, and partners that contribute to the automotive supply chain. The TISAX certification verifies that a company's security system adheres to this framework and allows sharing of assessment results.

There are three assessment levels of TISAX certification. MongoDB has been evaluated by Schellman Compliance, an independent certifying body accredited to conduct TISAX audits, and demonstrated compliance with the requirements and controls of the Information Security Objective at assessment level 3 (AL3) for very high high protection needs, which is the highest assessment level available and signifies a supplier's ability to handle and protect highly sensitive data.
