Hopefully most of us know that Software Patching is a key element in ensuring our devices are secure, with Patch Management being one of Cyber Essentials five technical controls. With the majority of vendors automating this, you’d think it would be a no brainer! But I’ve recently noticed that many of the millennial cohort are too busy to allow updates time to install. And it’s not a MAC or PC specific problem, this also applies to mobiles.
I recently discovered several devices in daily use to be more than two years out of date! With remote working becoming the new normal, this really worries me. Am I alone? How do we encourage the general public to accept updates rather than simply ignoring them? Let me know your thoughts. Any wisdom is gratefully received!
