I suggest take a look at CIS Benchmarks You will find detailed instructions on how to harden different operating systems and webservers like Apache as a matter of fact you can use the same benchmarks to build your puppet modules just for security.

Operating system running on server :- Windows 2012 Here following list of service will be running. ADDS DNS WDS File and storage services FTP IIS Apache tomcat MySQL server MSSQL Server 2012 URL rewrite module Windows server backup VisualSVN server

Depending on OS, DO tutorial section has a getting started guide… I followed the same for my VPS…

Then I followed the guides available on the software and services that I installed to further secure those… Like MySQL / HTTPD and such…

I dont think there is any universal guide…

What operating system and services are you running? Is this a web server? We will need a bit more information before we can suggest some security tips.
