The company I work for has their own IT department
Disabling security updates is a really bad idea on Win 10. If you’re running a 24/7 PC.. windows 10 really isn’t designed to be a server type OS. You really need windows server.. or Ubuntu Server (or any Linux derivatives that are meant to be a server) if you want free. You can delay updates on windows 10 pro.. but if you do disable the windows update service, it’ll be in your best interest to make sure the security patches from patch Tuesday are installed. Once a month.. and they aren’t gigs of data.

That's the Spring Creator's Update. It has a lot of new features and removes some old apps and features that are obsoleteMy Windows 10 PC at home just downloaded “Windows 10 Feature Update 1803,” which totaled just over 3.5 GB.
What on God’s green earth requires that big of an update?
It's almost a complete replacement of the entire OS. The install for 1803 is about 4.5GB.
This is exactly what the twice a year updates are, a complete installation of Windows. A complete install avoids the problem of partial updates that patching does and many have stated that they partially install Windows updates and then complain when there are issues. Microsoft simplified that by changing the whole works.It's almost a complete replacement of the entire OS. The install for 1803 is about 4.5GB.
At least your company has their own in-house IT. A lot of companies outsource their IT to "managed service" companies, because they feel they can save a few thousand bucks over paying someone's salary.
In my opinion, there's no substitute for having a human on staff who knows the environment and can handle all IT items in-house.
