First and foremost, perimeter devices should be configured with out-of-the box security. Confgure your switch/router with the following:

Block/deny traffic originating from external network using these addresses,, towards your perimeter devices.

With regards to BGP, routes that should not be advertised nor accepted should be filtered. This is done by configuring filter-lists.
