Summary

A comprehensive security patch management process is one of the fundamental security requirements for any IT-dependent organization. Fully defining this process ensures that patches are deployed in an organized, staged manner, resulting in little or no slowdowns or downtime to network infrastructure. Until now, there were no technical books for companies to use as a starting point for deploying the process. Curing the Patch Management Headache responds to this demand by tying together all aspects of the subject into one easy-to-understand format that is applicable regardless of the operating system, network device, or patch deployment tool.

This volume provides CISOs, CIROs, and IT directors and managers with the support and guidance that they need to integrate an effective patch management process into their environments. It emphasizes the importance of patch management and explains why having organizational support for the process drives successful implementation. The book details how patches should be implemented on devices and systems within an infrastructure, and how to distribute them in a timely manner.
