A while ago we released the Microsoft Security Update Guide to explain how we release security updates and how you should/could work with our updates. It encompasses these themes:

  • Get to know the security update release process
  • Learn how to evaluate risk
  • See how to mitigate security risks
  • Understand how quickly you need to apply updates
  • Assess your update
  • Get ongoing security

If you are somehow linked to the security update process in your organization, you should download it and look at it here: Microsoft Security Update Guide, Second Edition
