Answer: Good practice suggests that information assets classification should be done through a four-steps process:
- information assets should be entered in an Inventory of Assets, so you know which assets to protect
- information assets should be classified, considering their value to the organization and the impact if compromised
- information assets should be labeled, so people can identify its classification
- information assets should be handled in a secure way, considering their classification level
