Core System Update

I am trying to determine how often to update my systems.
Currently I am using anoncvs in order to synch my source.
>From there I run the typical
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make installkernel
# mergemaster -p# make installworld# mergemaster# reboot

Should I only perform this when a security vulnerability is found?

I am trying to achieve maximum uptime for these systems and want to confirm how often I should perform a core system update.


Please advise.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
