Meet myBulletins: an online security bulletin customization service

Microsoft is committed to promoting a safer, more trusted Internet and providing monthly security updates is one of the ways our customers keep their devices and connections to the Internet more secure. Packaging updates together into a monthly bulletin cycle stems from customer feedback and offers a predictable way to help protect them against newly discovered threats.

Today, we are excited to introduce myBulletins, a new online security bulletin customization service.

We’ve also created myBulletins based on your feedback. It’s a customizable online service that offers IT professionals a personalized list of the Microsoft security bulletins that matter most to their organization. It is easy to use: simply visit myBulletins, log in to your Microsoft account, select the products and versions running in your environment, and a customized list of only those security bulletins is displayed.

To develop myBulletins, we asked if there was anything we could do differently to make applying security bulletins easier. We recognize that not all of the products covered in the monthly security bulletins may be operating in your environment. You shared that you needed the ability to cut through complexity and make decisions quickly. You wanted help identifying the information that is most relevant to your organization. We heard you and acted on your feedback.

Starting today, myBulletins will enable you to quickly find security bulletins using advanced search and filtering options. The online service prioritizes security bulletin deployment by release date, severity, and reboot requirements to aid in decision making. The service provides a dynamic list in a customizable dashboard that can be edited at any time, as well as downloaded to a Microsoft Excel report.

myBulletins is our way to deliver on the promise to make applying security updates as seamless as possible.

There are three simple steps to get started:

  • Step 1: Visit myBulletins and sign-in with your Microsoft account

  • Step 2: Build your profile by selecting the Microsoft products you want to see in your dashboard

  • Step 3: View your personalized dashboard

We know that customers are best protected when all applicable updates are applied, which is why we think you should create a profile, use it, and let us know what you think by using the site feedback link. Our ears are open and we look forward to hearing about your myBulletins experience.
