WINDOWS OS, Patching

IE releases a cumulative patch every month so seeing that we are missing a cumulative IE patch from 2015

how do we start a standard baseline.

we have altiris , so if we never check for updates on windows server , will it contact altiris

so which comes first WSUS or altris?

So you haven't patched since 2015? Remember cumulative patches are just that. cumulative... If you missed that patch, you might have got subsequent patches that made that patch obsolete...

The patch will have a KB number, and you can usually find if it is superseded by a newer patch...
This site will give you a listing of all KB patches and their info...
