Glossary definition: Information Asset

Managing Your Company's Information Assets

An information asset is a resource that has value to an individual, organization, or government. It can be tangible or intangible, and may include physical assets (such as computers, networks, and storage devices), intellectual property (such as software, patents, and copyrights), or data (such as customer records, financial information, and employee records). Information assets can also include digital assets, such as websites, mobile applications, and social media accounts. Information assets are essential to organizations, as they provide the foundation for making informed decisions, creating competitive advantages, and providing value to stakeholders. As such, they must be protected, managed, and optimized to ensure their continued use and benefit.
