Enable a Firewall, reduce the number of Administrator Accounts, Use complex passwords.

The same Security applies to virtual machines as physical machines.

Do the following checkup:

Patches and Updates
Accounts
Auditing and Logging
Server Configuration
Backup and Restore
Firewall Protection
Default Password Policy
Disabling Unnecessary Service

Make sure only one primary function per server should be implemented to prevent functions that require different security level from co-existing on the same server. (For example: web servers, database servers, and Exchange should be implemented on separate servers.), i.e. If virtualized technologies are used; only one primary function should be implemented per virtual machine component or device.

Logging should be enabled to log all activities and logs should be monitored regularly.
