This article is a bit older but not at all dated. The information is based on a talk by Jesper Johansson, a Microsoft security program manager at a Partner conference in Toronto. I love his 10 tips.

10 things to get your network hacked
1. Don’t patch anything
2. Run unhardened applications
3. Log on everywhere as “domain administrator”
4. Open lots of holes in the firewall
5. Allow unrestricted internal traffic
6. Allow all outbound traffic
7. Don’t harden servers at all
8. Use lame passwords
9. Use high-level service accounts in multiple places
10. Assume everything is OK
