Once you apply a PSU, you will continue to need to apply PSUs - you cannot apply CPUs.
See Section 8 of MOS Doc 854428.1 (Patch Set Updates for Oracle Products)

Systems that store sensitive information and/or are exposed to the internet (or are more susceptible to attack) will need to go the CPU route (where patches are released on a quarterly basis).
Yes, I read that document, and not sure which way to go now.
I believe they both contain same patches.
How do I know, If we are on CPU OR PSU path?
Which way is better CPU or PSU?
Thanks for the quick response as alwasys !!!
Currently there is no release schedule for PSUs, so choosing this path would be more appropriate for highly secure databases, or for databases that do not contain sensitive information.
