During a security assessment, Karen discovers that server cabinets containing sensitive equipment were left unlocked in the data center. What type of control gap has Karen discovered?

A. Detective
B. Corrective
C. Physical
D. Compensating

Correct Answer: C

The use of locks could be described as both a preventive control, because it prevents someone from gaining access to equipment, and as a physical control, because it implements a security policy in the physical world. Of the choices provided, physical is the best answer, as the question does not allow you to select preventive.
