Scans are conducted at planned intervals, consisting of: • Application patch and service pack levels • OS patches and service pack levels When detected, remediation is prioritised according to the potential impact of a vulnerability being exploited, the importance of the device or system affected and balanced against the operational need for little or no disruption.
Protective monitoring type Supplier-defined controls
