Question No. 1

An organization is concerned with potential data loss in the event of a disaster, and created a backup datacenter as a mitigation strategy. The current storage method is a single NAS used by all servers in both datacenters. Which of the following options increases data availability in the event of a datacenter failure?

Answer: D

A SAN is a Storage Area Network. It is an alternative to NAS storage. SAN replication is a technology that replicates the data on one SAN to another SAN; in this case, it would replicate the data to a SAN in the backup datacenter. In the event of a disaster, the SAN in the backup datacenter would contain all the data on the original SAN.

Array-based replication is an approach to data backup in which compatible storage arrays use built-in software to automatically copy data from one storage array to another. Array-based replication software runs on one or more storage controllers resident in disk storage systems, synchronously or asynchronously replicating data between similar storage array models at the logical unit number (LUN) or volume block level. The term can refer to the creation of local copies of data within the same array as the source data, as well as the creation of remote copies in an array situated off site.

Incorrect Answers:

A: Replicating NAS changes to the tape backups at the other datacenter would result in a copy of the NAS data in the backup datacenter. However, the data will be stored on tape. In the event of a disaster, you would need another NAS to restore the data to.

B: Ensuring that each server has two routes to the NAS is not a viable solution. The NAS is still a single point of failure. In the event of a disaster, you could lose the NAS and all the data on it.

C: Deduplication is the process of eliminating multiple copies of the same data to save storage space. The NAS is still a single point of failure. In the event of a disaster, you could lose the NAS and all the data on it.



Question No. 2

A breach was caused by an insider threat in which customer PII was compromised. Following the breach, a lead security analyst is asked to determine which vulnerabilities the attacker used to access company resources. Which of the following should the analyst use to remediate the vulnerabilities?

Answer: D

Question No. 3

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.)

Answer: C, E

Question No. 4

A large enterprise with thousands of users is experiencing a relatively high frequency of malicious activity from the insider threats. Much of the activity appears to involve internal reconnaissance that results in targeted attacks against privileged users and network file shares. Given this scenario, which of the following would MOST likely prevent or deter these attacks? (Choose two.)

Answer: C, D

Question No. 5

A security analyst is reviewing the following company requirements prior to selecting the appropriate technical control configuration and parameter:

RTO:2 days

RPO:36 hours

MTTR:24 hours

MTBF:60 days

Which of the following solutions will address the RPO requirements?

Answer: C

Question No. 6

The Information Security Officer (ISO) is reviewing a summary of the findings from the last COOP tabletop exercise. The Chief Information Officer (CIO) wants to determine which additional controls must be implemented to reduce the risk of an extended customer service outage due to the VoIP system being unavailable. Which of the following BEST describes the scenario presented and the document the ISO is reviewing?

Answer: D

VoIP is an integral part of network design and in particular remote access, that enables customers accessing and communicating with the company. If VoIP is unavailable then the company is in a situation that can be compared to downtime. And since the ISO is reviewing he summary of findings from the last COOP tabletop exercise, it can be said that the ISO is assessing the effect of a simulated downtime within the AAR.

Incorrect Answers:

A: Evaluating business implications due to a recent telephone system failure is done as part of Business impact Analysis (BIA) and a BIA is done mainly to, and as part of analyzing business critical business functions, identifying and quantifying the impact of the loss of those functions.

B: Possible downtime within the Risk Assessment (AR) is done to determine the quantitative or qualitative estimate of risk related to a specific situation and establishing an acceptable risk.

C: Requests for Quotations involves the research involved to procure a contract for security requirements; the whole process of inviting suppliers of a service to bid for the contract.

Question No. 7

A completely new class of web-based vulnerabilities has been discovered. Claims have been made that all common web-based development frameworks are susceptible to attack. Proof-of-concept details have emerged on the Internet. A security advisor within a company has been asked to provide recommendations on how to respond quickly to these vulnerabilities. Which of the following BEST describes how the security advisor should respond?

Answer: A

The first thing you should do is verify the reliability of the claims. From there you can assess the likelihood of the vulnerability affecting your systems. If it is determined that your systems are likely to be affected by the exploit, you need to determine what impact an attack will have on your hosted data. Now that you know what the impact will be, you can test the exploit by using the proof-of-concept code. That should help you determine your options for dealing with the threat (remediation).

Incorrect Answers:

B: While penetration testing your system is a good idea, it is unnecessary to hire an independent security consulting agency to perform a penetration test of the web servers. You know what the vulnerability is so you can test it yourself with the proof-of-concept code.

C: Security response should be proactive. Waiting for the threat to be verified by the software vendor will leave the company vulnerable if the vulnerability is real.

D: Bringing down the web servers would prevent the vulnerability but would also render the system useless. Furthermore, customers would expect a certain level of service and may even have a service level agreement in place with guarantees of uptime.
