"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not much public info for specific checklist but only operation tips but I do like to share the below to form as part of the security checks

For Websense - focus on the flow of information through your enterprise
--Where is information typically coming from? Internal users? Partners? Vendors?
--Where does it need to be sent?
--What are all the potential pathways for information?
--What processes are in place, if any, to govern data flow?
--How many HTTP, SMTP and FTP exits or egress points in the organization?
Reference above, then lockdown in specific to service and port like
