Change SSID name


The organization must change the factory default name of the wireless network SSID.


An attacker can take advantage of default SSIDs because they are well-known and easy to find. They may use this information to target networks with known vulnerabilities associated with specific device models or manufacturers. Changing the default SSID helps to minimize the attack surface by making it more challenging to identify and potentially exploit known weaknesses.
