Just to tell your boss that the
worm/DoS/exploit/wathever-that-will-cause-a-severe-damage-on-machines-and-network
will cost them more than keeping their system up to date (with proof).
It's enough to convince them that the patching will save them a *LOT* of
money and time (if the patch don't broke the system of course, especially
with microsoft patches).

If they don't want to understand it.. Well, I want to be there when their
system will have a virus/wathever just to see their face :-)  Oh, it's
possible that the VP of company will tell to you that it's YOUR fault...
