Is there an updated SEP AV/AS best practices configuration document?

I have been pretty good about revising the basic config and stopping malware. I migrated my old policies from 11.x to my new 12.1.2 install but it seems more stuff is now getting through since upgrade. I created my old policies based on a Symantec document called ANTIVIRUS IS NOT ENOUGH—THE CHECK LIST. It has served me well but I do not see an updated version. 

I did find other Best Practice documents around proactive threat, firewall, insight and other pieces, but was curious if there was an updated AV/AS version I should be looking at. Thanks.

I will glance through but some of the links are older versions (or seem to be more 11.x focused). I saw several on the 12.x ones on the summary BP page but they weren't quite the same nicely done document from Symantec (which I attached).

I will try and go through the rest. I did miss the PowerEraser link so will check that out. Thx.
