With security in mind:

Use other VLANs other than vlan1. Disable vlan1. Disable ports (physical

etc etc...

That must be the top of the list:

Switches provide security (by traffic isolation)
DHCP provides security (by only letting in hosts we know)
MAC address filtering provides security (fill in the blanks…)
NAC provides security

Firewalls provide security
Buying Vendor-_ provides security
