The company is particularly concerned about unauthorized access to its physical offices resulting in network compromises. Which of the following should the consultant recommend be performed to evaluate potential risks?

  • A: The consultant should attempt to gain access to physical offices through social engineering and then attempt data exfiltration
  • B: The consultant should be granted access to all physical access control systems to review logs and evaluate the likelihood of the threat
  • C: The company should conduct internal audits of access logs and employee social media feeds to identify potential insider threats
  • D: The company should install a temporary CCTV system to detect unauthorized access to physical offices

  • C: Port security
  • D: Transport security
  • E: Address space layout randomization

Question 5
An internal penetration tester was assessing a recruiting page for potential issues before it was pushed to the production website. The penetration tester discovers an issue that must be corrected before the page goes live. The web host administrator collects the log files below and gives them to the development team so improvements can be made to the security design of the website.

  • B: CSRF
  • C: Brute force
  • D: XSS
  • E: TOC/TOU

Question 6
The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for an organization wants to develop custom IDS rulesets faster, prior to new rules being released by IDS vendors. Which of the following BEST meets this objective?

  • A: Identify a third-party source for IDS rules and change the configuration on the applicable IDSs to pull in the new rulesets
  • B: Encourage cybersecurity analysts to review open-source intelligence products and threat database to generate new IDS rules based on those sources
  • C: Leverage the latest TCP- and UDP-related RFCs to arm sensors and IDSs with appropriate heuristics for anomaly detection
  • D: Use annual hacking conventions to document the latest attacks and threats, and then develop IDS rules to counter those threats

Question 7

  • C: Install EDR
  • D: Install HIDS
  • E: Enable application blacklisting
  • F: Improve patch management processes

Question 8
An engineer is assisting with the design of a new virtualized environment that will house critical company services and reduce the datacenter’s physical footprint.
