Cybersecurity Collaborative launched this week a task force focused on asset management — a discipline of increasing importance to cybersecurity leaders who wrestle with challenges tied to the growing remote workforce and dispersal of resources to the cloud.

To slow the spread of COVID-19, many organizations implemented policies for employees to work from home. This prompted a widespread shift of IT infrastructure to the cloud and into employees’ homes — a shift that many predict could inspire hybrid workforce models to stick around long after risks tied to the pandemic subside. One problem cited by members of the Collaborative, however, is that these dispersed IT infrastructures hamper visibility into digital assets.  

“CISOs who don’t have full visibility into their systems, software, and data can’t secure them,” said Todd Fitzgerald, vice president of cybersecurity strategy at the Cybersecurity Collaborative. “Our members have indicated that this is a big challenge for them. That’s why we’re launching our Asset Management Task Force.”
