If you're running Security/AV software on your Mac, it may interfere with updates. Of course backup your current boot drive before updating. (And a bootable clone is a plus.)

FYI on Nvidia Web Driver Updates:
Users of Nvidia's web drivers should know that new OS updates (versions or later build numbers after Security Updates) break any currently installed Nvidia web graphics driver. I'd switch to the default Apple driver and reboot before updating, if your card is supported with the default drivers. If not, wait for a Nvidia driver update. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.)
Of course have a current backup (and if possible, a Clone) of your boot drive before any update. (As usual, I'll post download pages for Nvidia updates when spotted in the news and video topics page.)

Nvidia Web Graphics Drivers Update:
See this page for info/downloads of new Nvidia graphics driver updates for macOS 10.13.5 (17F77) and the new builds of macOS 10.12.6 and OS X 10.11.6 after installing Security Update 2018-003. (Updated July 9th to note new CUDA 396.148 release for macOS High Sierra.)
