Fire Alarms vs. Fire Hoses Keeping Up with Dependencies

Today no one can claim ignorance about the need for an open source vulnerability strategy, so what is yours? Are you the fire alarm type, who prefers to sit tight unless a vulnerability alert is ringing in your inbox? Or are you the fire hose type, staying ahead of the game with a never-ending stream of open source updates to apply?

Join Rhys as he discusses the pros and cons of these two approaches, as well as whether there's a magical middle ground between the two which doesn't involve a fire analogy.
