Hi Ali

In general if you don't need it then it is always best to turn it off.

Turning off source-routing is always a good idea if you don't need it.

CDP can be useful and we use it in our network but it is recognised as a potential security risk.

Proxy-arp, again if you aren't in need of it turn it off.

Attached is a Cisco doc for securing your routers
