Most cybersecurity violations are the result of employees or contractors in an organization doing things that they should be doing to failing to do things they should be doing, or both. The list below include some proven established practices from the viewpoint of customer management and risk reduction to ensure that cybersecurity risks are recognized and eliminated.

Remote /web client

  • Alway update web browsers and operating system on your client devices (PC, tablet, smartphone) to the latest version to eliminate potential security risks.
  • Always install a virus and malware protection program on your client devices (PC, tablet, mobile phone) that is continuously updated.
  • Replace devices that reach the end of their life or maintenance cycle.

Cloud applications

  • We recommend limiting the number of admin accounts to two for each Alarm Dashboard subscription. Limit the tasks to managing users and subscriptions.
  • Never provide the administrator login data to third persons.
  • Apply the principle of the minimum amount of privileges when inviting a user to the Alarm Dashboard. In other words, invite individual with roles that have the lowest level of privileges required to perform their duties within the organization.
    Note: Only the tenant administrator and application administrator are supported in this version. They are linked to the administrator in the Alarm Dashboard.
  • Delete/update user accounts as soon as a user is no longer a part of the company or his or her role no longer applies.
  • Information on roles and authorization is available in the user’s guide.
  • Always log off your session if you no longer need the application.

Security is a joint responsibility

  • As with any solution that includes a Cloud application or IoT devices as well as connected component on site, customer play an important part in securing systems.
  • Up-to-date systems and continuous training is the foundation for mastering cyber risks
