While every time doing an server maintenance team is reporting an security updates take more time on it , Can anyone describe the security update logs where we might be cross verify to confirm on it. ( Which path to check the security updates ) , Since system will report whatever we do the changes right.

There is no ability to only do security updates on CentOS. It's yum update or stay backlevel - you cannot cherry pick security updates only.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
