Subscribing to vendor or product security announcement mailing lists greatly helps you keep up with recent security patches. Additionally, you can subscribe to some independent mailing lists such as the lists from SecurityFocus or Full-Disclosure.
Of course, only watching the security mailing lists does not help alone—announced patches need to be applied. It is especially important not to lose all relevant information. One idea is to use a support ticket system (as used on help desks) to receive security announcements and track their handling. Several open-source projects, such as OTRS or Request Tracker, can be used for that.
