Control Statement

Catalogue and track all relevant physical and logical assets located at all of the CSP's sites within a secured system.

Implementation Guidance

Datacenter personnel should utilize a solution that enables inventory tracking and managing physical locations of servers and other data center assets while eliminating paper and manual processes. A hosted asset tracking solution for servers, switches, data center asset tracking and racks typically uses passive radio frequency identification (RFID), global positioning system (GPS), and/or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies.

Auditing Guidance

  1. Examine the policy relating to defining asset location and disposition.
  2. Examine the asset registers and determine if they are stored and accessed securely.
