In reality, it is very simple to know how often you need to update your resume. You only need to have an updated resume when you need to use it. After all, it does not matter how out of date your resume is if no one ever sees it. So, if you begin a job search to replace your current job, take the time to update all your information before sending your resume out.
Hypothetically, it may be a good idea to have an updated resume ready just in case you get an unexpected job offer. In this case, you still do not need to worry too much about updating your resume regularly. After all, not much changes on your resume as long as you stay in the same job. The only time you need to update your resume is when changing jobs, getting a promotion, having job responsibilities added, etc.
