Using Threat Intelligence is going to help you with prioritizing what needs to be patched immediately.
Software Vulnerability – and Patch Management is becoming more and more important. Due to the ongoing global threats, attacks on critical infrastructures in many countries are increasing. Back in 2019 (just before Covid) patching was recommended within 30 days (or 14 days for CVSS score 7 or higher) Right now, hackers can deploy exploits within 1 week and even within 24 hours . This means that organizations need to prioritize even better to quickly patch vulnerabilities (especially the ones with threats associated with them)
