Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) notifications provide full scale remediation recommendations, but only offer alternative risk reduction strategies in cases where the full remediation has not yet be made available. 

Security professionals in charge of maintaining and performing security patching and application updates do not have the means to quickly take action per the guidance of newly published CVEs. 

Fortunately, there are some alternative strategies to help reduce the cyber security risk in the interim.

In this webinar we will discuss the recent high and critical CVEs and discuss reasonable, short-term steps that can be implemented to reduce the risk of exposure until a complete remediation can be executed.
