Did you try ? :
How long does it typically take for Debian to patch/fix security updates?

https://www.debian.org/security/faq
or
https://www.debian.org/security/

There is not really a set time, but they do the updated as needed,
and when needed.
The above links go into details about how they go about it.
Many advisories are coordinated with other free software vendors and are published the same day a vulnerability is made public

---------------
In order to receive the latest Debian security advisories, subscribe to the debian-security-announce mailing list.

You can use apt to easily get the latest security updates. This requires a line such as

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
