Cybersecurity principles

Following these cybersecurity principles may help to reduce the risk of cyber threats to the network where your system is installed.
  • Keep your phone up to date and install the latest security updates.

  • Only connect to secure Wi-Fi networks.

  • Only download apps from Google Play or Apple store.

  • Use all of your mobile phone’s security settings:

    • long passcodes

    • two-factor authentication (2FA)

    • facial recognition

    • block unknown apps

  • Use strong phone and account passwords:

    • Do not reuse a password from any other account.

    • Passwords should be 12-16 characters long. (A passphrase is best and easier to remember.)

    • The password must be a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, punctuation and symbols.

    • Do not use a password with easily guessed or commonly known personal information. For example, avoid using home town, favorite pet or high school mascot.

Decommissioning a device

If you remove a device from your system to gift, resell or otherwise dispose of, firstly remove any personally-identifiable information from the device by performing a factory reset. This is especially important when decommissioning a system hub. Refer to the particular device instructions for information on how to perform the factory reset.
