Recommendations to optimize cybersecurity in a protected environment:

  • Document and store passwords and usernames in a protected location.

  • Change the default password of 0 (zero) to help reduce unauthorized access. Default account settings are often the source of unauthorized access by malicious users.

  • View the Device Configuration Checklist to quickly determine if the default password is used:

  • Use Advanced security mode.

  • Use complex passwords or passphrases with a minimum length of six characters.

  • Follow user account management tasks as described by your organization or contact your network administrator, for example, maximum password age or history policies.
