Default Security Policy updates

I'm new to Samsung devices and recently bought a T337V, the Verizon version of the Tab 4 8.0. (My prior tablet was a Xoom, purchased very shortly after release.)

I'm getting a pop-up to install Samsung Security Policy updates. Should I take them? I'm rooted and don't want to lose root.

Do you mean to accept the new policy? Theres a notification that says you must agree to the new terms and policy.

Nope, that's not what I'm talking about. I get a notification icon that looks like a police badge. When I click it, this pops up.
