MakoLab with TISAX Standard required by the leading automotive companies
Tuesday, 7th January, 2020
MakoLab, as a reliable business partner for the automotive companies, has implemented TISAX - the international standard developed by the German automotive industry association, VDA. TISAX sets out the conditions for maintaining the required level of confidentiality when exchanging information with the subcontractors and suppliers. This means that MakoLab has adapted work standards according to strict regulations, completed the audit process, and provides information security required by the rule in cooperation with the most significant players on the automotive market. The implementation has been carried out with the support from PWC Polska.
The automotive industry is characterised by specific requirements related to i.a. the vast scale and frequency of information and data exchange. When exchanging information with external entities, the critical issue is protecting prototypes and ensuring secure communication with subcontractors and suppliers. TISAX is a globally recognized standard for information security audits for the automotive industry. All companies related to the automotive sector (e.g., car manufacturers, raw materials suppliers, suppliers of services for the automotive industry companies and their clients, research institutes, contractors and entities cooperating with the production) may apply for its implementation.
The introduction of TISAX standard at MakoLab is one of the key elements in the process of further expansion on the automotive industry services market. It will help us build long-lasting and trust-based relationships with the clients. As a result, it is a chance to establish new business relations
says Wojciech Zieliński, CEO at MakoLab S.A.
At MakoLab, TISAX is a natural extension of the ISO 27001 standard implementation. The new location of the company's office at ul. Ogrodowa 8 in Łódź promotes a flexible approach towards customer requirements and meets the strongest requirements regarding project workrooms. When carrying out their daily tasks, all employees adhere to security standards, ensuring the protection of the information entrusted by the clients.
TISAX is currently a must-have standard for the suppliers to participate in tenders organised by the most significant automotive industry market players. It confirms that the company ensures information security at each project stage. Compliance with information security rules regulated by TISAX standard applies to all employees of the company: project managers, developers, testers as well as IT departments. Work standardisation brings positive effects because it becomes a habit that we automatically transfer to projects implemented in other – also non-automotive- areas at MakoLab. The orderly work environment makes it even easier for us to implement new employees into the company work standards
