Have a plan
I just read an article that said only 33 percent of respondents have an endpoint security plan in place. Then I read a Forbes article that detailed how stockholders are suing companies for lying about security. This is not something to take lightly! 

It helps to start with making sure you have endpoints like printers that HAVE their own security. A security strategy should be multi-layered. Start on the inside and work your way out!

Great Article
While thankfully our team has thought to ask MOST of these questions - great list.  And we will admend our omissions in our upcoming vendor testing.
