We recommend the following to stay safe

  1. Employ Device Discovery
    Discover the types of devices connected to the network and keep a detailed, up-to-date inventory of all connected IoT assets.
  2. Apply Network Segmentation
    IoT devices that connect directly to the Internet should be segmented into distinct networks and have restricted access to the enterprise network.
  3. Adopt Secure Password Practices
    Reset the preset password of IoT devices with a secure, more complex one. The new password should be difficult to guess, unique to each device, and in line with the IT security team’s password policies and management practices.
  4. Continue Patch Management and Software Updates
    Ensure that devices and software are updated either over network connections or through automation. Work with IoT device vendors to establish recurrent patch management and firmware
