This paper discusses the steps required to implement a successful security patchmanagement solution which can be used to help protect the enterprise. Patch management is about mitigating risk to the confidentiality of your data and the integrity of your systems. Patch management can be the most effective tool used to protect against vulnerabilities and the least expensive to maintain if implemented effectively. The goal of this paper is to describe how to establish a routine patch-management procedure and to make it a part of standard operations.
