The Cybersecurity Evangelist, Episode 13 – Prattling on About Patching

By Jennifer Lyn Walker, The Cybersecurity Evangelist

In this no frills, no fanfare, solo, and sometimes painful episode of TCE, I literally prattled on about patching on this day after “Patch Tuesday.” I focused on the importance for all, along with a warning to be wary of overhyping. I encouraged listeners to turn on automatic updates on their personal devices and urged organizations to support their teams with greater resources so patches stop getting deferred. I touched on the recent Apple update and gave a few examples of some of the problems we run into when we defer patches for weeks, months, or even years.

Thanks for listening to me get patching off my chest in this solo episode of the TCE podcast, party of one.
