In the automotive industry, the networking of business processes between companies is giving rise to increasing risks in information processing. A specialized working group of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) therefore develops recommendations and tools for its members to protect information. (Further information on this topic can be found on the website of the VDA).
In close cooperation, a VDA view was also created for verinice which simplifies the processing of ISA questions on the basis of ISO 27002 and facilitates the submission of results. This allows an Information Security Assessment (ISA) according to the requirements of the VDA with verinice. Version 4.1.0 of the corresponding VDA ISA catalogue is currently available and will be valid from 01.01.2019.
A beta version is currently available for verinice. Please note: The initial post and the thread are German only, however the link for the English beta version is embedded.
The questionnaire is also interesting for users outside the automotive sector: It enables a guided self-assessment of the state of information security in one's own company and thus an introduction to the topic of IS management.
To carry out an IS assessment with verinice, you need a verinice client. Get the latest verinice version directly from verinice.SHOP.
