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 Russia-Ukraine conflict , 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)
