Patch Management

Patch Management is the process of deploying updates, bug fixes, security paths, services packs, drives and other software changes AFTER its been tested in a secure, none-production environment.

A best practice is to test first, and NEVER automatically accept and install untested software.

We discuss many of the adverse events that can occur when that is done, and why it may not be necessary to deploy just because it was released.  Once this lesson is complete, you’ll know the pre-deployment steps to take to establish good Patch Management practices.
