A top priority for organisations should be patching critical, easily exploitable vulnerabilities. WannaCry, for example, was a known vulnerability, disclosed and patchable for nearly two months before being successfully exploited due to a gap between awareness and an applied fix.
This whitepaper contains an in-depth discussion on how organisations can close this gap to avoid attacks on known vulnerabilities, as well as:
- Leveraging DevOps for agile methods of creating and deploying new applications;
- Concerns about the threat of IT impacting OT;
- Lessons learned from 2017 malware outbreaks.
