Patch Management:
8 Steps to Developing an Effective Strategy

When it comes to developing a Patch Management strategy for your organisation, having the right procedures in place to undertake regular scanning and timely remediation are crucial.

The last thing you want to discover is that vulnerabilities identified months or even years ago have been left un-fixed. Unless you develop an effective Patch Management strategy to keep up to date with timely remediations, you risk leaving yourself exposed.

All too often we see hackers target organisations that, for whatever reason, have failed to patch certain known vulnerabilities, even though they may have been identified years earlier. Perhaps the IT team simply overlooked the patch, or maybe they weren’t aware the vulnerability existed.

Either way – developing an effective Patch Management strategy is essential to ensure you’re not left carrying too much risk.

By developing a Patch Management strategy that follows these 8 steps, you’ll be in a strong position to ensure your organisation stays secure.
