  • Questions: 5
  • Time: 60 seconds per question (0 hours, 5 minutes, 0 seconds)
  • Included Objectives:
    • Vulnerability Management
    • Security Operations
    • Reporting and Communication
    • Incident Response and Management

A cybersecurity analyst is reviewing the vulnerabilities associated with an older, mission-critical application. The application cannot be updated or patched without significant downtime, which would impact business operations. After evaluating the application's vulnerabilities, it is determined that they are not actively being exploited in the wild and the potential impact is low. The environment is heavily monitored with numerous compensating controls in place to detect any malicious activity. Which course of action is most appropriate for the cybersecurity analyst to recommend in this scenario?

  • Recommend avoiding the risk by ceasing the use of the application and seeking an alternative solution.

  • Recommend transferring the risk to a third-party vendor specializing in legacy application security.

  • Recommend mitigating the risk immediately by taking the application offline for patching.

  • Recommend accepting the risk and continue monitoring for any changes in threat exposure.

When capturing volatile memory during an incident response action, it's acceptable to use the hibernation file (hiberfil.sys) as it is an exact representation of RAM contents.

  • True

  • False

A cybersecurity analyst observes a long-term pattern of network infiltration, exfiltration of sensitive data, and the use of advanced techniques to maintain stealth within a corporate network. This behavior is most indicative of which type of threat actor?

  • Hacktivist

  • Advanced persistent threat

  • Insider threat

  • Organized crime group

What is the most likely impact on business operations when an application experiences an unexpected halt in service?

  • Unexpected increase in network bandwidth

  • Increased drive capacity consumption

  • Disruption of business operations

  • Introduction of new user accounts

Upon reviewing the vulnerability management plan, a cybersecurity analyst notices that certain vulnerabilities are not being patched despite having existing patches available. Which of the following is the MOST likely inhibitor to the remediation of these vulnerabilities?

  • The use of legacy systems that cannot support new patches

  • Strict encryption standards that block patch installations

  • Business process interruption

  • The presence of redundant systems

  • Budget constraints for new security tools
