EDAG do Brasil is now certified in VDA ISA Information security standard
EDAG do Brasil is very proud to be now the first engineering service provider for automotive industry in Brazil certified according to the VDA ISA Version 3.0 Standard. An on-site inspection, performed by a German auditor from the company OS-Operational Services, proved our Information Security competences. The assessment was made based on the highest “level 3”, including “Handling of Information with Very High Protection Level”, “Handling of Prototypes” and “3rd Party Connections”.
The VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry) developed a catalog of questions about information security (the Information Security Assessment, or VDA ISA), which is based on essential aspects of International Standard ISO/IEC 27001, for testing and certification of companies.
During recent years this has become an industry standard for Information Security. At present it consists of one basic component plus additional modules for prototype protection, connections to third parties (e.g. project offices and project areas) and data protection. The current valid Assessment Standard has been available since the beginning of 2017.
”In these days of increasing risks by industrial spying, virus and hacker attacks, Information Security Management has become a corporate vital importance” – states Stefan Schramm, EDAG Brazil Information Security Officer.
This VDA ISA certification confirms the very high importance EDAG gives to the protection of this valuable asset “Information”, which we handle and care daily for our customers. EDAG always took Information Security seriously, investing since many years continuously in IT systems, in building infra structure, in training of our employees, to reduce the risks which could impact the business continuity, confidentiality, data integrity and availability as well as compliance with law and customer requirements.
With this certification we will continue to treat our customers' data even better than we have already handled in all 25 years of EDAG do Brasil. Thus our customers could be absolutely sure that their data, their information, their prototypes and all the tasks and processes relevant to information security will be treated with the highest level of protection and responsibility.
