Study on Windows 3rd party patch management


My name is Tuukka Tiainen. I am a candidate for a Master of Engineering in programme of Cyber Security in JAMK University of Applied Science in Finland. This is an invitation to participate a survey which is a part of my Master’s Thesis study on 3rd party application patch management on Windows environments. The thesis is as an assignment from my current employer.

Here are some of my research questions I am trying to find answers to.

1. How do organizations manage the 3rd party application patching?

2. How important is 3rd party application patching considered?

3. What kind of processes and tools are involved in 3rd party patch management?

You can participate the survey in the following URL. It should take around 10 minutes to complete the web survey.

Thank you very much!
