Re: The most effective defense?
True and the OS update issue is the responsibility of the IT staff and team to make clear and evident - THAT is their job and all too often, well, disrupting the business is just TOO HARD.  Like that patch that brought down Equifax.  Right?   I work with a CSirt team using great tools and while every firm and small business may not have access, it still has to be tackled as best allowed.  But keeping old W7 systems running now is asking for trouble.  As it was with XP ( of which alot of that is still out there on legacy boxes).  The IT staff has a daunting job sometimes but it is THEIR JOB and if they do not like it, there are always trade school courses on welding. 

Disclaimer: I am something of an expert on disaster recovery techniques when 18 years ago I had to walk down out of my office building in lower Manhattan and shortly later the data center on the 103rd floor of the south tower followed me down.  I am a survivor of that day from Aon, on the 101st floor, S-tower, of the World Trade Center.
