Updating Directories and Files

Hi guys.

So brand new Unix user and first time poster.

I have a set of directories and files on my local computer. I also have a set of them on another system. I have updated the files locally and need to now pass this on to the ones on the system I ssh into. What is the quicker way to do this other than scp everything over? Just to update what has been changed.
