Well, what I usually do  in these cases ( not necessarily saying it is the BEST
way, but it seems common sense enough for me) is use freebsd-update to keep
world +kernel up to date with security patches. That is, of course, if you have
a default configuration (GENERIC or SMP kernels). Otherwise, just point your
cvsup / csup files to the -RELENG branches of the code and you'll only get
those updates ( eg, 6.2-RELENG-pX , where X is the patch # to  6.2-RELENG ) so
you can rebuild your kernel + world as needed.

run portaudit daily to see what ports have been affected by security issues.
Decide whether to upgrade those that have been marked as 'with problems' by
portaudit. Sometimes the issues detailed by the portaudit report don't affect
you, although if you are in doubt, you should upgrade .

is what is expected to this time of the year ( Southern hemisphere ;) )
