Free CompTIA Security+ SY0-701 Practice Question

What is an unintended consequence of adding layers of security through automation that could paradoxically weaken a system's defense mechanisms?

  • Introducing automation invariably simplifies all security processes, eliminating any chances of misconfigurations.

  • Adding security automation exclusively strengthens system security, preventing attackers from finding any vulnerabilities to exploit.

  • Enhanced complexity due to security automation could lead to misconfigurations that attackers might exploit.

  • Automation decreases system complexity by removing the human element, therefore eradicating human error in security altogether.
