What is an Asset? – Risk Management Terminology

An asset is anything in an organization that should be protected. Assets can be very broad and some examples include:

  • Laptops
  • Servers
  • Databases
  • Hard drives
  • Company products
  • Facilities
  • Processes
  • Furniture
  • Employees

Assets can vary from organization to organization. In theory, anything an organization classifies as important enough to protect, can be labeled as an asset for risk management purposes.
