The Importance Of A System Map


One of the most important tools you will need in cybersecurity governance is what we like to call the System Map. A System Map is exactly what it sounds like: a map of all of your systems and where they are located. It is a consolidated list that allows you to quickly see all of your asset details, chain of responsibility, and more.

It is extremely important to maintain this kind of consistent oversight in order to prevent potential data breaches - as well as to recover from a breach quickly and effectively. While we never want to think it will happen, sometimes even well laid plans can be thwarted by cyber criminals. There are 5 Key Components to building a System Map:
  1. Banking Function
  2. Location (in-house or cloud)
  3. Vendor
  4. Individual Login (employee access)
  5. System Owner and Business Owner

We have provided an overview of what a system map is and what it does in the video provided. If you want to have more in depth information on the system map and even take a course on how to create one, join the FINOSEC Academy.
