Safeguard Windows Updates
Safeguarding Windows Updates, also known as Patching Operating Systems, is one of the Australian Cyber Security Centres (ACSC) recommended Essential 8 strategies used to prevent cyber attacks and limit the extent of damage caused by incidents. Similarly to Safeguarding Program Updates, regular and proactive updating of Windows is vital to ensure any system vulnerabilities are fixed; thus, protecting the business from malicious codes (malware) entering the network.
Updating can be undertaken automatically across all supported Windows operating systems as part of our Cyber Security Management System (CSMS). Along with Safeguarding Program Updates, Safeguarding Windows Updates forms a strong first point of defense against potential threats. In addition to prevention, it can also minimise the extent of damage caused in the event of a security breach.
