Many employees are working remotely due to the pandemic, so security teams are facing a new challenge of how to secure everyone's home routers as they may be vulnerable to attacks.
Home routers are a more static and predictable location for an attacker, especially if we are including Wi-Fi access points, common to all-in-one gateway devices. Home routers also include a variety of entertainment and home automation devices, all of which could have their own vulnerabilities.
The easiest and most efficient method to tackle this issue is to provide every company employee with some basic security education.
The below given guidelines can be followed to increase router security and prevent unexpected attacks:
Log in to your router, check for firmware updates, and upgrade if one is available. Set up a monthly task as a reminder to log in to see whether any new versions are available.
Verify that "Remote Administration" or "Administration from WAN/Internet" are disabled. If enabled, they allow access to the management UI from the Internet.
Review firewall settings for any open or proxied ports. If you're unsure of the origin of a particular entry, disable it.
Check Wi-Fi network settings, if applicable, and verify you're using WPA3 Wi-Fi security standard, if your devices support it, or at least WPA2.
Make sure your network password is complex.
Review your attached devices list for anything suspicious, and verify the identity of unknown hosts.
