Redefining the Role of Asset Management in Cybersecurity

The asset management industry is undergoing profound changes that have only been accelerated by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Many of the changes have created trends influencing the industry, however, many of these were already in motion prior to the onset of the pandemic, but with social distancing, working from home and on-demand communication thrown into the mix, companies must continue to adapt, or risk being left behind.

This is where the line between IT and security is blurring. What was once a simple definition between keeping information safe and providing the tools necessary to get work done is no longer clear. Seemingly overnight, a foundational understanding of what devices, users, and cloud instances exist has jumped in priority for CISOs. In this new enterprise, why does asset management – once a pure IT play – matter for cybersecurity? How can both the IT and security teams benefit from asset management?

Join Axonius’ CEO & Co-Founder Dean Sysman and other senior IT and security leaders and decision makers during the 90-minute interactive boardroom as we identify why the asset management problem hasn’t yet been solved – and what to do about it as well as what approaches to asset management work and don’t work in today’s enterprise environments.
