Demo Questions

Question 1
An infrastructure team is at the end of a procurement process and has selected a vendor. As part of the final negotiations, there are a number of outstanding issues, including:
1. Indemnity clauses have identified the maximum liability 
2. The data will be hosted and managed outside of the company’s geographical location 
The number of users accessing the system will be small, and no sensitive data will be hosted in the solution. As the security consultant on the project, which of the following should the project’s security consultant recommend as the NEXT step?

  • A: Develop a security exemption, as it does not meet the security policies
  • B: Mitigate the risk by asking the vendor to accept the in-country privacy principles
  • C: Require the solution owner to accept the identified risks and consequences
  • D: Review the entire procurement process to determine the lessons learned

Question 2
A security administrator is hardening a TrustedSolaris server that processes sensitive data. The data owner has established the following security requirements:
The data is for internal consumption only and shall not be distributed to outside individuals 
The systems administrator should not have access to the data processed by the server 
The integrity of the kernel image is maintained 
Which of the following host-based security controls BEST enforce the data owner’s requirements? (Choose three.)

  • A: SELinux
  • B: DLP
  • C: HIDS
  • D: Host-based firewall
  • E: Measured boot
  • F: Data encryption
  • G: Watermarking

Question 3
An SQL database is no longer accessible online due to a recent security breach. An investigation reveals that unauthorized access to the database was possible due to an SQL injection vulnerability. To prevent this type of breach in the future, which of the following security controls should be put in place before bringing the database back online? (Choose two.)

  • A: Secure storage policies
  • B: Browser security updates
  • C: Input validation
  • D: Web application firewall
  • E: Secure coding standards
  • F: Database activity monitoring

Question 4
A penetration tester has been contracted to conduct a physical assessment of a site. Which of the following is the MOST plausible method of social engineering to be conducted during this engagement?

  • A: Randomly calling customer employees and posing as a help desk technician requiring user password to resolve issues
  • B: Posing as a copier service technician and indicating the equipment had “phoned home” to alert the technician for a service call
  • C: Simulating an illness while at a client location for a sales call and then recovering once listening devices are installed
  • D: Obtaining fake government credentials and impersonating law enforcement to gain access to a company facility

Question 5
A security engineer is designing a system in which offshore, outsourced staff can push code from the development environment to the production environment securely. The security engineer is concerned with data loss, while the business does not want to slow down its development process. Which of the following solutions BEST balances security requirements with business need?

  • A: Set up a VDI environment that prevents copying and pasting to the local workstations of outsourced staff members
  • B: Install a client-side VPN on the staff laptops and limit access to the development network
  • C: Create an IPSec VPN tunnel from the development network to the office of the outsourced staff
  • D: Use online collaboration tools to initiate workstation-sharing sessions with local staff who have access to the development network

Question 6
A systems security engineer is assisting an organization’s market survey team in reviewing requirements for an upcoming acquisition of mobile devices. The engineer expresses concerns to the survey team about a particular class of devices that uses a separate SoC for baseband radio I/O. For which of the following reasons is the engineer concerned?

  • A: These devices can communicate over networks older than HSPA+ and LTE standards, exposing device communications to poor encryptions routines
  • B: The organization will be unable to restrict the use of NFC, electromagnetic induction, and Bluetooth technologies
  • C: The associated firmware is more likely to remain out of date and potentially vulnerable
  • D: The manufacturers of the baseband radios are unable to enforce mandatory access controls within their driver set

Question 7
During a security assessment, an organization is advised of inadequate control over network segmentation. The assessor explains that the organization’s reliance on VLANs to segment traffic is insufficient to provide segmentation based on regulatory standards. Which of the following should the organization consider implementing along with VLANs to provide a greater level of segmentation?

  • A: Air gaps
  • B: Access control lists
  • C: Spanning tree protocol
  • D: Network virtualization
  • E: Elastic load balancing

Question 8
A security administrator was informed that a server unexpectedly rebooted. The administrator received an export of syslog entries for analysis:


Which of the following does the log sample indicate? (Choose two.)

  • A: A root user performed an injection attack via kernel module
  • B: Encrypted payroll data was successfully decrypted by the attacker
  • C: Jsmith successfully used a privilege escalation attack
  • D: Payroll data was exfiltrated to an attacker-controlled host
  • E: Buffer overflow in memory paging caused a kernel panic
  • F: Syslog entries were lost due to the host being rebooted

Question 9
An organization has employed the services of an auditing firm to perform a gap assessment in preparation for an upcoming audit. As part of the gap assessment, the auditor supporting the assessment recommends the organization engage with other industry partners to share information about emerging attacks to organizations in the industry in which the organization functions. Which of the following types of information could be drawn from such participation?

  • A: Threat modeling
  • B: Risk assessment
  • C: Vulnerability data
  • D: Threat intelligence
  • E: Risk metrics
  • F: Exploit frameworks

Question 10
To prepare for an upcoming audit, the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) asks for all 1200 vulnerabilities on production servers to be remediated. The security engineer must determine which vulnerabilities represent real threats that can be exploited so resources can be prioritized to migrate the most dangerous risks. The CISO wants the security engineer to act in the same manner as would an external threat, while using vulnerability scan results to prioritize any actions. Which of the following approaches is described?

  • A: Blue team
  • B: Red team
  • C: Black box
  • D: White team
