What is Asset Management?
Cybersecurity asset management is the process of identifying the IT assets your organization owns and the potential risks or gaps that could affect those assets. These assets come in many forms, from devices like PCs and servers, or software like a cloud-based databases or company-owned domains. Every device, resource, or service that exists in your IT environment is at risk of attack. An attacker can use compromised resource to launch a broader attack on your system.
Why is it Significant?
Effective cybersecurity asset management enables early detection of threats, through continuous monitoring of IT assets and potential risks. This proactive approach reduces response time in case of an attack and provides a clear understanding of the incident by providing a list of assets and risks involved.
Risks of Poor Asset Management
Neglecting asset management not only hampers security but also exposes the business to risks. Cyberattacks that lead to unavailability of data or systems can result in operational downtime, damaging the company’s reputation and finances (IT downtime costs an average of $5,600 per minute).
