Build and Deployment -> Patch Management: Usage of a short maximum lifetime for images

Risk and Opportunity

Risk: Vulnerabilities in running containers stay for too long and might get exploited.
Opportunity: A good practice is to perform the build and deployment daily or even just-in-time, when a new component (e.g. package) for the image is available.
