Assets to be protected related to information and data processing services should be inventoried. The purpose is to ensure that the cyber security is focused on the necessary information assets.

Inventory can be done directly in the management system, but an organization may have other, well-functioning inventory locations for certain assets (including code repositories, databases, network devices, mobile devices, workstations, servers, or other physical assets).

Describe in this task, which lists outside the management system are related to protection of information assets.
