HOW CAN IT ASSET MANAGEMENT HELP YOUR ORGANIZATION?
Cybersecurity is not just an IT problem; it is a business problem. Executive managers and board members are now being held accountable for data breaches. While we live in a world of continuous, escalating, malicious, and potentially massive threats. Executives and board members that do not understand the full scope of exposure to the business are compromised in their ability to guide and oversee the construction of the cybersecurity strategy.
One of the most fundamental aspects of a successful cyber program is understanding and controlling the technology base; the vital hardware and software assets on which the business runs. Without comprehensive and unified visibility into all technology assets – on-network, off-network, physical, virtual, software, cloud subscriptions, etc. – organizations cannot effectively determine their cyber risk profile. Even the most basic of cyber hygiene approaches such as patching, anti-virus, and disk encryption will be inherently flawed if they are based on incomplete asset data.
For over two decades, our experts have been instrumental in helping organizations of all sizes and across all industries and geographies to minimize cyber exposure and protect their brand’s reputation.

This analysis is designed to give you rapid insight into your specific situation, while providing a high-level view of why these issues are important.
