Why is it important to keep our systems up to date?

“Updates, updates and more updates” is the title of one of the lectures included in the Digital Transformation Module of C1b3rWall Academy 2021, whose objective is to learn about the advantages of keeping systems updated. It is taught by Víctor Carrión Hontoria, who has 18 years of experience as a Computer Systems Administrator and works at the CARTIF Technology Center, a research center located in Valladolid.

Common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE) are commonly reported vulnerabilities that are managed by an international entity. Each time a security vulnerability emerges, it is catalogued and described, detailing the specific versions it affects, and whether there is a solution.

First of all, it is essential to keep an updated inventory and to think about what is going to be updated, how and when. The roadmap also involves establishing levels of criticality and establishing customized plans for each company (size, type of work, personal or corporate teams, etc.). In addition, it is very helpful to monitor exceptions and draw up mandatory regulations within the company.
