It's possible to go overboard when you start thinking about security.  Most of the things that should worry you when you are NOT logged in are things that you handle by setting the parcel to allow rezzing and object entry by yourself or group only.  Don't worry about scripts.  If you turn off the ability for everyone to use scripts, then you will shut down many AOs and other worn scripts, and may disable vehicles that enter your parcel and are abandoned.  The owner of your region/estate will have disabled terraforming.  If not, disable it for anyone but yourself, or you can have real problems.  Other than that, there's not much you have to think about.

If you truly want to keep from being bothered by unwanted visitors when you ARE logged in, you can set up nasty ban lines, but those annoy people more than they help you.  You can get security orbs that are more selective and friendlier.  There are no rules about ejecting people from your own land.  The TOS says only (Sect 4.8), "You may permit or deny other users to access your Virtual Land on terms determined by you. Any agreement you make with other users relating to use or access to your Virtual Land must be consistent with these Terms of Service, and no such agreement can abrogate, nullify, void or modify these Terms of Service."

My own personal guidelines:

1. Remember that you cannot be physically hurt, and nobody can steal your stuff in SL.

2. Be nice.

The best antigriefer defense is to BE THERE to deal with them.  Of course, you have to have the necessary abilities...be able to eject and ban a griefer AT LEAST from your parcel, and preferably from the entire estate (the estate owner must grant you this ability.)

Since you yourself can't be there all the time, you should build up a formal or informal group of venue managers who also have enforcement powers.

If your venue isn't large enough to warrant such a group, consider asking a group like the Green Lanterns to keep an eye on things for you.
