Barry is the CIO of an organization that recently suffered a serious operational issue that required activation of the disaster recovery plan. He would like to conduct a lessons learned session to review the incident. Who would be the best facilitator for this session? A. Barry B. Chief Information Security Officer C. Disaster Recovery Team Leader D. External Consultant Correct Answer: D Barry should recruit an independent moderator to facilitate the session. Having a moderator who was not directly involved in the effort encourages honest and open feedback. While it is not necessary to use an external consultant, they may easily fill this role. While it is also possible to find a qualified internal employee to fill this position, it should not be someone who was involved in the incident response effort or has a major stake in the plan, such as Barry, the CISO, or the DR team leader.   Interested in more practice test questions?   Get a copy of my official CertMike Practice Test books for the Security+ exam, CISSP exam, SSCP exam, or CySA+ exam and practice with hundreds of questions designed just like the real test! ...

Which of the following options will provide the most resilience against large-scale DDoS attacks?A. Implement a CDN B. Increase the number of servers in the web application server cluster C.

Alyssa’s team recently implemented a new system that gathers information from a variety of different log sources, analyzes that information, and then triggers automated playbooks in response to security events. What term best describes this technology? A. SIEM B. Log Repository C. IPS D. SOAR Correct Answer: D Security information and event management (SI-EM) systems do correlate information from multiple sources and perform analysis, but they stop short of providing automated playbook responses. That is the realm of security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) platforms. Intrusion prevention platforms have a more limited scope, allowing the blocking of traffic based upon analysis performed by the IPS itself. Log repositories simply collect log information and do not perform analysis.   Interested in more practice test questions?   Get a copy of my official CertMike Practice Test books for the Security+ exam, CISSP exam, SSCP exam, or CySA+ exam and practice with hundreds of questions designed just like the real test! ...
