What is IT-2 Inventory control?

The IT-2 Inventory Control asks: ‘Are you aware of all the IT devices (such as laptops, organization mobile devices, phones, tablets, smartphones, printers, etc.) being used in your organization?

If so, are you tracking them?

Typically, for most organizations, these assets are workstations; however, some organizations enable smartwatches or systems for their employees. The goal here is to track such devices.

If the organization is using an asset management tool, tracking is easy. If not, this is to be done manually and reviewed at least once a year.
