Security updates for debian

I just installed Debian 3.0r1 and want to get all the latest security updates off the web. Is there some special security update program I need to run?

I haven't used Debian in a while, let's see... I think it is:

run as root:

# apt-get

open apt in man for more help

# man apt

Hope this helps
