Security centric works for me because I update programs only if there is a benefit to doing so. Otherwise, if it ain't broke, I don't fix it. I've occasionally used an earlier version of a program because the update made things worse. To protect mysef from that, I keep the all versions of the installers of all my downloaded programs in a folder so if I need to revert to an earlier version, I can. I also always save the installer of a downloaded program to my computer first instead of just installing it directly so I can keep it just in case. It also protects me if a program becomes abandonware and can't be found on the internet anymore.
