Microsoft Windows Patch Tuesday
Did you know that Microsoft regularly releases security patches for its software products on the second Tuesday of every month? How frequently do you update your computer? Here is some guidance to keep your device secure and your Microsoft software up to date and running smoothly.
Do I need to make changes on my computer?
- Not if you use a Partners standard Windows computer (those with the asset tag, yellow lock and Partners' screensaver). The updates are run for you and devices are usually patched the Friday following Patch Tuesday. Both Microsoft and Adobe products are typically updated at this time. This can change if there is a significant freeze in place.
- Yes, you need to run updates if you use a non-standard Windows, Macintosh or personally-owned device for Partners' business. It is your responsibility to keep your device and software up to date.
