Check for Mac updates

If you are a UIndy employee with a UIndy Mac computer, you need to make sure your operating system updates regularly to prevent it from becoming vulnerable to malware and hacking.

Updates (e.g. Catalina 10.15.1 to Catalina 10.15.2) happen between major operating system upgrades (e.g. Mojave to Catalina) and usually address bug fixes or security issues. Instructions on upgrading to Catalina are addressed in a different article.
