Those and others already are defined by default:

if( MSVC )
  add_definitions( -D_SCL_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE )
  add_definitions( -wd4146 -wd4503 -wd4996 -wd4800 -wd4244 -wd4624 )
  add_definitions( -wd4355 -wd4715 )
endif( MSVC )

This isn't, but adding an option for just one define does not save any
