We like to keep things clean around here!
Keeping systems up-to-date is one of the surest and simplest ways to stay secure. In 2020, CISA and the FBI both recommended that organizations place an increased priority on patching to mitigate increasing risks from state actors and organized crime.
You might have automatic updates turned on, but do you know what machines are patched at any given moment? The process is more complex than it seems, complicated by machine reboots, user interruptions, and failing updates.
Even on a fully patched system, human error is still a factor. Combining patch management with security awareness training is a powerful way to ensure your staff stay protected anywhere they are – in the office or working from home.
