Supporting IT security is a prioritized goal of IT Asset Management (ITAM). One way to help mitigate security risk is for IT Asset Managers to have employee awareness sessions. Employees need to be informed of their roles and how they can help to protect the organization. Once an employee knows and understands their part in protecting the organization, the data security risk may decrease.
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.
