If you keep clicking “Remind Me Later” on that update window, eventually it’ll cost you. Why not let the BlueHat Cyber team manage your updates and patches for you?
Did you know that the most common way cybercriminals get into a network is through loopholes in popular software, applications, and programs? Despite how advanced modern software is, it is still designed by humans, and the fact is that humans make mistakes.
Due to this, much of the software you rely on to get work done every day could have flaws — or “exploits” — that leave you vulnerable to security breaches.
Many of the most common malware and viruses used by cybercriminals today are based on exploiting those programming flaws; to address this, developers regularly release software patches and updates to fix those flaws and protect the users.
This is why it’s imperative that you keep your applications and systems up to date.
Comprehensive and regular vulnerability management is a crucial part of proper IT security. Some of the worst data breaches are based on “zero-day exploits”, which are based on exploits found by hackers but not by the developers, leading to severe security risks and an immediate need for patching.
In order to maintain a secure IT environment, you either have to make sure your staff is staying on top of all incoming updates or better yet, you need to work with a reliable cybersecurity partner like BlueHat Cyber to take care of it for you.
