To staff, it can seem like there’s always a program or operating system pinging them to update. We know it’s dangerous to put off upgrading, but to others it may feel like a time-consuming task. Take advantage of the coming new year to communicate to staff any updates you know of coming in the next year. This can help them feel prepared for the unavoidable changes, rather than caught off guard. Since many of these updates include security patches for as yet unknown system vulnerabilities, it is a good idea to take this sharing of the schedule as a chance to remind all why the updates happen and encourage compliance.
