March 31, 2016 Leave a comment
I’m moderating this session, on Thurs 21st April (1500 BST), looking at how IT asset management and security work together.
I am looking for a CIO, IT director or CISO to join our panel (alongside someone from Dell and an industry analyst).
Please contact meif you would like to take part.
Manage IT Assets for Effective Security
The growth of Bring Your Own Device, a more fluid business perimeter, shadow IT, and personal device ‘sprawl’ is making it harder to ensure effective security.
For CIOs and their teams, IT asset management is one of the ‘known unknowns’: businesses are aware they have only a partial picture of the devices on their network, who is using them, and the data they are handling.
But unless organisations know which IT assets are on their network, they will struggle to control them, let alone secure them.
In this webinar, we will explore the relationship between good security, and effective asset management, including:
How to protect the company from security breaches caused by unknown and unmanaged devices;
The role of software compliance in preventing and limiting security breaches;
How ensure company-owned assets are up to date with security, encryption and compliance
How improved asset management can bolster security
