Cybersprint is proud to announce our partnership with project THESEUS. Project THESEUS aims to empower organisations to patch faster by radically changing the risk governance of patching.
Many organisations face an important dilemma when it comes to patching: patch fast with the risk of downtime and failures, or patch later with the risk of being vulnerable for longer. Moreover, there is also often the issue of delayed patching due to a complicated or extensive governance structure. As a result, organisations often take too long to patch critical security vulnerabilities. This leaves them vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Project THESEUS aims to empower organisations to patch much faster, more efficiently, and with less risk, by redesigning the risk governance of patching. To achieve this, universities, municipalities, hospitals, IT- and security providers, and other governmental institutions and initiatives work together.
The research focuses on three specific pillars surrounding patching.
- Systems: reducing risks related to patching by applying new patch techniques.
- Enterprises: better quantify patch risks through improved triage and impact estimates.
- Governance: more effective management of patch risks through better information sharing, benchmarking and possibly legal instruments.
Cybersprint contributes knowledge and expertise to the project, using our services for the purpose of collecting research data and to give advice.
THESEUS is part of NWO's National Research Agenda, within the thematic programme 'Cybersecurity'.
