  • Update the Operating System with the current patches (and keep it updated)
  • Install anti-virus software and verify that it is updating correctly
  • Remove unnecessary applications and install the current patches for all the remaining  applications
  • Securely configure any applications that listen on an external port
  • Register the host in server management registry database. Document the University business need for an external server and why the existing infrastructure cannot be used. Exteral IP request is part of Registry. Registry Database
