The faster you respond to a Zero-Day, the more likely you will keep the attackers at bay. It seems simple, but we all know there are many obstacles along this path including a lack of visibility, alignment between the vulnerability and patch processes, and a resource shortage that leaves you without staff to quickly implement the many processes needed to remediate the vulnerability. One way to circumvent some of these obstacles is to automate the application of relevant patches for new vulnerabilities with specific risk. For example, you can create a patch automation job that responds automatically to new ransomware-related vulnerabilities that are actively used in attacks. This allows faster response to the riskiest vulnerabilities.

In this session, you will learn:

* Tips for increasing Zero-Day response times

* Areas ripe for patch automation such as Microsoft Windows Updates

* How to save time and effort deploying patches

* Gaining alignment between IT & Security Teams
