Updates, Patches and Hackers Oh My!
Most data breaches ard due to hackers exploiting known vulnerabilities. I know, I hear it all the time – patching takes time, and it can indeed be risky, especially if you have any legacy hardware or software in your network system or if you have several patches to do. For my clients, we take care of patching their systems for them — but for those that listen to me on the radio — remember to patch early and patch often.” Businesses today must be sure that they are updating and patching their systems regularly. The reality, though, is that patching can be time-consuming, and frankly, we often have other things on our plates that take our attention. But remember, it is only a matter of time before an incident will occur, and it could cost you your business.
