My previous post on this subject concentrated at a high-level on the need for adequate, effective and proportionate levels of asset protection to be implemented and operated by businesses, and for many the first step in achieving this will be to identify the assets within the business. Regardless of what stage your business is at with this it is critically important that you identify the nature of the asset, in the context of the business and the products and/or services that it provides to its customers, as it is only once that this has been done that appropriate levels of protection control can be designed and implemented. Not forgetting of course about Change Control, it is not just for IT/Technology assets but all those that you identified in the previous step, as the effectiveness of any asset protection strategy will only be maintained if changes are assessed for the impact that they may have on the protection controls and the asset itself.
