{Hacker Hour} The Importance of Patch Management

{Hacker Hour} The Importance of Patch Management

Most organizations rely on vendors that frequently develop and issue patches to correct bugs, improve performance, or enhance the security of their software. While organizations are looking to identify and protect against any identified vulnerabilities, cyber criminals are racing to exploit them before any patches are launched. 

According to the Ponemon Institute, 57% of cyber attack victims say an available patch could have prevented their breach. Even further, 34% of respondents were already aware of the vulnerability before they were attacked.  

Join SBS as we discuss the importance of patch management, what is holding organizations back from timely patching, and what you can do to help your organization improve its patch management program.

Hacker Hour webinars are a series of free webinars hosted by SBS CyberSecurity. Unlike paid webinars, Hacker Hours are aimed to meet on a monthly basis to discuss cybersecurity issues and trends in an open format. Attendees are encouraged to join the conversation and get their questions answered. SBS will also offer products and services to help financial institutions with these specific issues.
