Maybe. Probably.

But if I'm the person in charge of a bunch of computers in a
organization, like a city, and something does happen, that somebody can
blame on the software not being updated, it is my arse which would be burnt.

If the machines are updated, or if I'm mandated not to update, then it
is somebody else's arse.

Simple as that.
