Asset Inventory and Classification

The ISO 27002 standard requires organizations to properly protect and manage their critical IT assets. Above Security has developed its asset inventory and classification methodology based on the premise that in order to protect information, it is essential to know where it is stored, and to follow the following stages:

  • Conduct asset inventory;
  • Define asset ownership;
  • Define appropriate use of the assets;
  • Classify the informational assets; and
  • Protect & manipulate the informational assets.


An asset inventory must include the logical and physical elements of the informational infrastructure, and should include the locations, the associated business processes and the data classification for each data element. It should equally consist of the essential data characteristics that must be protected, such as the type of information to index, the level of data sensibility and any other information or critical asset identified by your organization.
Above Security’s comprehensive asset inventory and classification offering covers:

  • Information assets: Data files, databases, user procedures and manuals, archives, etc.
  • Physical assets: Servers, rooters, PCs, laptops, communication tools, PABX, etc.
  • Applicative assets: Software packages, specific software, operating systems, development tools, utility programs, etc.
