Proper procedure for locking down GPOs?

Kevin Beaver explains how to use Group Policy objects to block trojan downloads from attacking networks.

What is the procedure (if any) to lockdown GPOs against trojan attacks? How can I prevent attacks against my Group Policy?
Prevention is the smartest route here. The best way to do this is to simply lock down your domain controller(s) with anti-malware software and limit who can login and what can be done from the console. You could also install a host-based intrusion prevention application such as BlackICE for Servers.
