CSW S1, E9 – What Is Technology “End-Of-Life” and Why Should You Pay Attention?

Fred Cobb – CISO and VP of Services, InfoSystems

Chad Waddell – Sr. Security Architect, InfoSystems

 

In this episode, Fred and Chad discuss End-of-Life (EOL), when your systems, devices, or firmware are no longer supported by their developers. You'll learn how to prepare for the End-of-Life dates for your technology and how to decide whether you need to upgrade, retire, or completely replace these tools.

Being unprepared for systems, devices, and firmware End-of-Life can leave these tools unsecured and unprotected. Not only will the technology be outdated, it will be incompatible with all - or most - other software. Preparing for EOL for your technology can be accomplished by planning ahead and following regular maintenance schedules. Keeping technology maintained will put you in a position to make the easiest upgrade or transition when your EOL date approaches.

Listen to the full episode to learn more about End-of-Life and how to avoid unexpected disruptions and issues.
