This policy defines requirements for patch management on all SF State owned information technology systems, network resources and applications.
All SF State-owned information technology systems, network resources (e.g., switches, routers and firewalls) and applications will have a management-appointed person or persons (formally identified) responsible for maintenance of operating systems, security software and applications.
Unless a security patch or update introduces security or performance issues, all components will be kept current, including the operating system, Web server, application server, DBMS, applications and all code libraries.
All departments and units will follow documented patch management standards and procedures in conformance with change control policies.
