NCSAM: If You Connect It, Protect It—Smart Devices Need Smart Security.
Here are three steps you can take to ensure if you’re connecting it, you’re protecting it.
1. Lock Down Your Login.
Make sure that your passwords are long (at least 12 characters), unique and safely stored. Passwords are not enough. Use multi-factor authentication— biometrics, security keys, or a unique, one-time code when offered (this adds another layer of protection).
2. Keep Software and Systems up to Date on Your Devices.
Don’t click “remind me later” to software updates. Updating your systems now will help keep cyber criminals away!
3. Own Your Online Presence.
Configure the privacy & security setting on all new & existing accounts.
