    'If we want to use a verb after a preposition, it must be a gerund (which functions as a noun).'── quoted from https://www.englishclub.com/grammar/verbs-gerunds_2.htm

    'Be' is missing before 'responsible'.

    dondon525, clicking on the 'Thank' button can obviate the need for a new post saying 'Thank you', such is one of the many unwritten rules on this forum.

    dondon, please note that a better title would have been updates or updating.

    Maybe, but why do you assume he wants to use a verb after a preposition? He may just want a correct sentence.
    The following is also correct:
    1. The company should be responsible for updates
    of the content.
