TISAX and ISO/IEC 27001:2022 - Cybersecurity for the Automotive Industry

by Martin Hettwer published on September 08, 2023

In October 2022, the ISO/IEC released the third edition of the newly titled International Standard ISO/IEC 27001:2022 named, Information Security, Cybersecurity, and Privacy Protection – Information security management systems – Requirements. According to ISO 27001 clause 4.3, the organization shall determine the boundaries and applicability of the Information Security Management System (ISMS) to determine and document its scope. Just like a formal project scope statement, the organization must define everything that is inside its ISMS scope and those activities and controls that are out of scope. ISMS implementation teams must complete a gap assessment to the requirements of this standard and prepare a Statement of Applicability (SoA) to capture all activities that it does and owns, as well as justification for those controls that do not apply to its current business model.
