Recommended way to secure your server

1) Run SSH in a non-default port
2) Install a good firewall system apf/csf
3) Install IDS system like OSSEC
4) Install Linux socket monitor
5) Remount /tmp with loop,rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev option
6) Install clamav and if you are using Cpanel install clamav connector for WHM

If I missed anything please add in the list.
