    4. If possible, run each network service on a separate system to minimize the risk of one compromised service being used to compromise another service.

  4. Use git-secrets for id management
  5. Each person should have their own individual account
  6. Each application should have its own individual account.
  7. Do not allow directly into the root account. This goes for any shared or application account as well. 
  8. Do not let users log in directly as the web server user, for example. At least require them to log into their individual accounts first, and then switch to the root or other shared account user.
