Sadly, I think that at a great many organisations, a truthful answer
would be "Two weeks after realising that a critical bugfix for essential
software will not be forthcoming because potato support was dropped six
months ago".

Less cynically, I'm very impressed that the security team is taking the
step to perform this survey.  It affirms a change within the project of
caring for the concerns of users outside the project.
