No.

Enable BPDU Guard on the access ports.

HelloYou should also think

Hello

You should also think about layer1 devices such as hubs:

 

int range fa / gig x/x -xxx
switchport host
spanning-tree bpduguard enable
switchport port-security aging type inactivity
switchport port-security violation restrict/shutdown
switchport port-security maximum 3
udld port aggressive
spanning-tree guard loop
exit

errdisable recovery cause psecure-violation
errdisable recovery cause udld
errdisable recovery cause link-flap
errdisable recovery cause loopback
