We’re talking patch management. Because let’s be honest, a lot of businesses are getting it wrong.
What’s a patch? It’s a set of changes that a developer releases when they discover a problem or vulnerability in their software. It literally patches up the problem until a full update is available.
Here’s the thing: 57% of data breaches are put down to poor patch management. Which means businesses are either not installing patches, or they’re doing a bad job of it.
When a patch becomes available, it’s really important that it’s installed right away. If you don’t, you’re leaving your business open to attack.
Who checks for patches in your business? Who installs them? And who checks the patches don’t create new, unexpected problems?
