Hello list members

I'm looking for various mitigation techniques that prevent Malware and
DoS attacks/vulnerabilities/distribution. What measures help to
prevent Malware and DoS? Do you have any ideas to extend my current
list of possible measures?

To prevent from DoS:
- broad and redundant Internet access
- agreement with ISP to intervent in case of DoS or DDoS
- good subnetting with firewalls in between
- IPS deployment

To prevent from Malware:
- antivirus deployment
- defense-in-depht
- IPS deployment
- user awarness
- keeping systems up to date

Thanks for your feedback!
Joe
