Potential compromise of system availability, integrity, and confidentiality
  • Change default passwords/passcodes to help prevent unauthorized access to device settings and information.
  • Disable unused ports/services and default accounts, where possible, to minimize pathways for malicious attacks.
  • Place networked devices behind multiple layers of cyber defenses (such as firewalls, network segmentation, and network intrusion detection and protection).
  • Use cybersecurity best practices (for example: least privilege, separation of duties) to help prevent unauthorized exposure, loss, modification of data and logs, interruption of services, or unintended operation.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.
