Asset Inventory Management

2021.1

You can’t protect what you can’t see. Therefore, it is imperative for LifeOmic to maintain an accurate and up-to-date inventory of both its physical and digital assets.

More details on data inventory and data lifecycle management is documented separately in Data Management.

Policy Statements

LifeOmic policy requires that:

(a) IT and/or Security must maintain an inventory of all critical company assets, both physical and logical.

(b) All assets should have identified owners and be tagged with a risk/data classification.

(c) All physical assets must be labeled with a company property tag.

(d) Asset inventories should not duplicate other inventories unnecessarily, and ensure their respective content is aligned.

Controls and Procedures

Physical Asset Inventory

LifeOmic IT leverages a SaaS-based IT asset management system, Kandji, along with AWS Console to maintain inventory of all company managed physical computing equipment, including but not limited to:

  • servers
  • workstations
  • laptops
  • printers
  • networking equipment

Each record includes details of the physical device such as manufacturer, model as well as ownership details and property tag ID.

The movement of computing hardware and electronic media is maintained as part of the records, including media re-use and ownership reassignment.

LifeOmic IT manager is responsible for ensuring each physical asset is applied with a LifeOmic property tag, and an up-to-date record is maintained in the IT asset management system.

Digital Asset Inventory

LifeOmic Security team uses an automated system to query across our cloud-based infrastructure, including but is not limited to AWS, to obtain detailed records of all digital assets, including but not limited to:

  • Virtual machines
  • AWS EC2 instances
  • AWS S3 repositories
  • AWS Lambda functions
  • Security agents
  • Source code repositories
  • User accounts

The records are stored in a database system maintained by LifeOmic security team. Records are tagged with owner/project and classification when applicable. All records are kept up to date via automation.

Wireless Infrastructure Inventory

LifeOmic IT maintains an inventory of all wireless access points within a centrally managed WiFi controller, and details the business justification for each to support the identification and response to unauthorized wireless access points.

Paper Records

LifeOmic does not use paper records for any sensitive information. Use of paper for recording and storing sensitive data is against LifeOmic policies.
