Many times, data breaches and incidents are due to an employee being unaware that what they are doing is a security risk. IT Asset Managers should implement an employee awareness program, and they should have repeat sessions of certain topics. This helps employees to remember why they need to strictly follow policies and procedures. IT Asset Managers should meet with the IT security team to see how else they can help and to be educated by the security team.
The International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM) is the largest organization providing education, certification and thought leadership to the management of IT as a business. IT Asset Management is the management of hardware, software, mobile and other technology to maximize the value to the organization.
