Security Asset Inventory Approaches

A security asset inventory requires accuracy far beyond what an IT team needs.

It must contain all the assets a security team is accountable for protecting. One missing asset could be the hole in the castle wall that the attacker uses to get inside and open the gates. The importance of implementing a sound security asset inventory strategy cannot be overstated. For this reason, a security asset inventory is a foundational security control that is prominently featured in nearly every security framework such as the SANS Critical Security Controls and NIST Cybersecurity Framework. It serves as the bedrock upon which your security architecture is built, providing the essential groundwork for your organization’s effective defense.
