ISO IT Asset Management Standards Outreach Meeting

Date:  Thursday, November 9, 2017
Location:  Reston, VA


The ISO Working Group for IT Asset Management Standards (WG21) is holding an industry outreach day on Thursday November 9th, 2017. This event is kindly hosted by Oracle Corporation at their facility in Reston, VA.

Whether government or industry, IT Asset Management is a critical part of enterprise operations and provides the foundation for successful cybersecurity, entitlements and risk management functions.  Organizations depend on accurate, comprehensive inventory of IT assets for reducing licensing costs, tracking vulnerabilities and protecting critical systems.

The purpose of this event is to allow interested representatives of the US Federal, State and Local Governments as well as software and tool vendors and private sector attendees to meet with WG21 members, including with the editors of the standards, learn about ISO developments and direction, discuss some of the ISO standard in details, provide feedback and comments, ask questions, and network with each other.
