Today’s security updates are too big, too risky and too late. It is common for enterprises to thoroughly test security updates and install them several months after they have been released, which leaves them open to inexpensive attacks. Now this problem is getting a solution: micropatching – hot patching in a microsurgical manner, with patches so tiny that they could be distributed on Twitter.

Mitja Kolsek’s (CEO and Co-Founder, 0patch and ACROS Security) last 15 years of career comprise co-leading a small security outfit which ran APT-like attack simulations before China was guilty of everything, using SQL injection before it had a name and discovering vulnerability types which were previously unknown. In addition to finding and exploiting vulnerabilities, his next 15 years will be augmented by fixing them. Most of all he’d like to leave information security someday in a state where it’ll be seriously difficult to break into a typical network deploying standard and inexpensive security solutions. He is writing technical blog and whitepapers on information security. He is also presenting at renowned conferences such as RSA Conference USA, RSA Conference Europe, HITB, Source, DeepSec and others.
