Due to the integration of technology within our world today, we are constantly bombarded by news of vulnerabilities found to have been active for years while we use various services. Unfortunately, all these services are created by humans, and as such, it is impossible to remove any flaws or potential exploits from them.
While we won’t be able to remove every flaw from services that companies need to function, we can manage them well enough to limit the impact. With proper maintenance of software versions, you can help keep your data safe from the hands of malicious individuals. Keeping up to date on various technology news sources is the first step in proper vulnerability management. If you notice a news article reporting on a breach or vulnerability, please contact your IT provider immediately and express your concerns. It is always better to be safe than sorry in these circumstances.
After contacting your IT provider, they will investigate the issue further to determine whether your company could be affected by this news. Afterward, resources should be set aside to resolve this issue or investigate methods of limiting its effect. Proactive maintenance is always better than reactive; however, with vulnerabilities like these, reaction time is all that matters. If you see any news of a breach with software, or a service that you utilize, please contact your IT provider immediately.
