As a cyber security professional, it is often your responsibility to set security standards for your organization. These standards must define the scope of processes, procedures, and practices necessary for protecting cross-departmental assets. Before you are able to create these standards, you must first understand what asset security is and how it functions. Knowledge in this domain is particularly attractive to employers growing or redefining their IT security sector.

An asset is any data, device, or other component of the environment that supports information-related activities. Simply protecting those components, either hardware or software, from illicit access, use, disclosure, alteration, destruction, or theft, encompasses access security.

On its face, this topic seems fairly simple, but when placed in the context of the CISSP exam, asset security is structured as domain 2 and classified as especially tricky. The Asset Security Micro Certification Course makes this topic more straightforward by focusing on knowledge of concepts, structures, and standards used to monitor and secure assets. This test will help you differentiate between classification and categorization. It also covers data quality and policy, as well as QA.
