Practical and secure methods of securing hard copies of data help identify the point of liability, help to enforce compliance, create an audit trail and establish a traceability mechanism which can protect the organization from threat. Electronic equipment containing sensitive information, can be a targeted weak point of defence in a government department. Sophisticated firewalls can protect the penetration and corruption of data from the outside, but how is the movement of the actual mobile devices controlled? Asset theft can cost the organization heavily, but the data is almost irreplaceable.
If internal unlawful or corrupt practices are uncovered, documentation and electronic equipment becomes state evidence. Steps need to be taken to ensure the safeguarding of these items during investigations.
Enterprise asset management (EAM) in a distributed asset network is an onerous task, but without a clear view of what assets you have, what condition they are in, what their optimum performance should be, who is interacting with these assets, what scheduled maintenance should take place and when these assets should be replaced, the business is exposed to imprudent spend and unjustified profit erosion.
