Chapter 16. Guarding Your System Against... > Security Maintenance Measures

Security Maintenance Measures

We have discussed numerous methods of protecting personal information, your computer systems, and your networks. As we have said, security is just a point in time. Just because you are secure today does not mean you are secure tomorrow. Stopping the attacker from ever gaining access to your system is the best method of securing your systems. It's difficult to clean up a system after it's been compromised.

To keep your systems up-to-date with the latest security patches, fixes, virus scanner signatures, and any other security measures you might have in place, you must follow constant security procedures. Like any company that takes security seriously, you have to be serious in your endeavors to keep vigilant about weaknesses in your environment. If you only check your security periodically or implement patches infrequently, you are asking to be compromised.
