Fix Recommendation

The IAO will ensure that all security related software patches are scheduled to be applied and documented.

System Programmers and IAOs should regularly check OS vendor web sites for information on new security patches that are applicable to their site. All applicable security patches will be scheduled to be applied to the system. A security patch is deemed applicable if the product is installed, even if it is not used or is disabled.

FSO does not test or approve patches or service packs. It is the site’s responsibility to test vendor patches within their test environment.
