Don't Leave Patch Management to Chance
AbstractPatch management is a costly but necessary part of server management. Should more time be spent on patch evaluation and analysis or testing and implementation? This paper attempts to introduce conditional probability into the patch management process giving the reader a tool to evaluate where best to spend their time, analysis or testing. Bayes’ theorem will be used to help predict the outcome of a patch management example.
