Free CompTIA Security+ SY0-701 Practice Question

A company's employees are experiencing difficulty accessing a key resource for their operations due to the security measures in place on the organization's network. The network uses a digital gatekeeping system to analyze and approve site credentials. The resource in question was previously compromised, leading to a downgrade in trust, though it has since been secured by its owners. What action should the IT department take to resolve access issues without undermining the integrity of their cybersecurity stance?

  • Maintain the restriction until the system's scheduled reassessment occurs, regardless of the reported fix.

  • Create a direct pathway in the network's perimeter defenses for this specific resource, exempting it from the trust evaluation process.

  • Evaluate the latest security posture of the resource and adjust its trust rating in the system accordingly after a thorough verification.

  • Provide blanket authorization for the resource, bypassing the existing analysis and approval functions.
