Cybersecurity is the backbone of a safe house. Making smart choices will help you protect effectively the valuable assets you are already guarding with physical Security Camera System. Take a look at these 10 tips to help guard against a potential cyber attack.
1. Updates: keep your software and firmware updated.
2. Use Complex Passwords: minimum 8 characters long and a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters.
3. Responsibilities: Each user should only be given the authority to access their specific responsibilities.
4. Record: Every action should be done logged in, so that there is a record kept for later use.
5. Protect your Network: Use a firewall. There are ease to install and they even come pre-installed in most routers.
6. Use uncommon ports: “security through obscurity.” This creates an additional step when someone is trying to access your appliances.
7. Secure your installation: Keep your network and IT assets with limited access. Make sure they are protected from unwanted access.
8. Invalid Login: Use password lock-out features for invalid login attempts. And if possible, receive notifications of these attempts.
9. Plan ahead: Decide who to notify in the case of a breach.
10. Malfunctions: In the case of vulnerability due to a flaw with the manufacturer, notify the manufacturer so that they can test. If an issue is found they can also work to fix it.
