Media and assets

I'm just an information security management student. And I have a questions about the ISO 27001. Sometimes in the ISO 27001 they talk about media and sometimes about assets. Like the disposal of media and removal of assets. What is the difference between " media" and "assets"?

Answer:

Media is the way information is stored or delivered (e.g. paper and electronic file), while asset is anything of value for the organization, not only information (e.g., an equipment, a facility, people, etc.). So, in a sense, a media is one type of asset.
