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.
