This week I came across two quotes that reinforced why keeping up with firmware patches is both critically important and massively difficult. At a virtual think tank webinar hosted by ReliaQuest, the CISO from Nielsen (Chris Hatter) commented that "The fundamentals of being good at cyber hygiene is the most neglected aspect of cybersecurity. If you're not good at the very basics and making sure you understand the basics on your network—like patching and remote monitoring—you're not set up for success”. In other words, inability to maintain device firmware is foundational in any cybersecurity program. On the CISO Series Headlines Show, host Steve Prentice in referring to the almost daily cadence of firmware updates being pushed to patch critical vulnerabilities said “makes you nostalgic for Patch Tuesday doesn’t it?”.
