Free CompTIA CySA+ CS0-003 Practice Question

A cybersecurity analyst observes a significant spike in network traffic volume during non-business hours. The traffic is directed at an internal server that usually has low bandwidth usage. What should be the analyst’s FIRST action in response to this observation?

  • Immediately restrict outbound traffic from the affected server to prevent potential data loss.

  • Check for open ports on the firewall that shouldn't be open.

  • Update the firmware on all network devices to ensure the latest security patches are applied.

  • Analyze the types of traffic to establish the nature of the packets causing the spike.
