Part 1 — Reconcile rapid digital transformation with security and compliance

Understand your assets that need protection

Understand your business processes and the data processed or generated in these processes.

The structural analysis creates transparency and provides you with the basis for increasing automation as part of your efforts in maintaining a high level in information security.

A configuration management database (CMDB) is used by an organization to store information about hardware and software assets, often referred to as configuration items (CI). It is useful to break down CIs into logical layers. This database acts as a data warehouse for the organization by storing information regarding the relationships among its assets. The CMDB provides a means of understanding the organization’s critical assets and their relationships, such as IT systems and dependencies of CIs.
