I'm not sure how this related to debian-isp but anyway you could add
testing to your sources.list and do:
apt-get update && apt-get -u install ssh

Then either take it out again or create an /etc/apt/preferences file
with something along the lines of:
Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 50
