Full error message is -

Ledger Application level error (sign-with-hash): Security status unsatisfied - The operation was automatically rejected for security reasons. If baking, you may need to setup the device or reset the high-water mark.

I've reset my highwater mark, but still gives me that error message. I'm on v11 and my Ledger is 2.2.13.

The solution is indicated in the last sentence. You need to run

tezos-client setup ledger to bake for <alias>

you can set a High-Water-Mark by appending

--main-hwm <HWM>

HWM can be the current Blockheight, or any block higher than your last bake or endorsement.
