Balance risk against updating your mission critical systems


Any company running a mission critical system is always faced with this dilemma – how to balance the benefits of applying the latest software updates against the risk and expense of changing elements of mission-critical system. One can’t help but think about the security breach that occurred at Equifax where one of the reasons for the severity of the breach was that “attackers entered its system in mid-May through a web-application vulnerability that had a patch available in March” according to Wired. Yet not patching can obviously have serious consequences.

How can this dilemma be solved?
