  1. Device encryption

  2. Application control

  3. Content filtering

  4. Screen-locks

Answer: B Explanation:

Application control is the process of controlling what applications are installed on a device. This may reduce exposure to malicious software by limiting the user’s ability to install applications that come from unknown sources or have no work-related features.

Question No: 762 – (Topic 4)

Which of the following is the below pseudo-code an example of? IF VARIABLE (CONTAINS NUMBERS = TRUE) THEN EXIT

  1. Buffer overflow prevention

  2. Input validation

  3. CSRF prevention

  4. Cross-site scripting prevention

Answer: B Explanation:

Input validation is a defensive technique intended to mitigate against possible user input attacks, such as buffer overflows and fuzzing. Input validation checks every user input submitted to the application before processing that input. The check could be a length, a character type, a language type, or a domain.

Question No: 763 – (Topic 4)

When considering a vendor-specific vulnerability in critical industrial control systems which of the following techniques supports availability?

  1. Deploying identical application firewalls at the border

  1. Patch management

  2. Application hardening

  3. White box testing

  4. Black box testing

Answer: A Explanation:

Patch management is the process of maintaining the latest source code for applications and operating systems by applying the latest vendor updates.

`Please only use letters and numbers on these fields’ Which of the following is this an example of?

  1. Proper error handling

  2. Proper input validation

  3. Improper input validation

  4. Improper error handling

Answer: B Explanation:

Input validation is an aspect of secure coding and is intended to mitigate against possible user input attacks, such as buffer overflows and fuzzing.

Question No: 768 – (Topic 4)

Which of the following can be used as an equipment theft deterrent?

  1. Screen locks

  2. GPS tracking

  3. Cable locks

  4. Whole disk encryption

Question No: 769 – (Topic 4)

Which of the following does full disk encryption prevent?

  1. Client side attacks

  2. Clear text access

  3. Database theft

Question No: 770 – (Topic 4)

Which of the following describes the process of removing unnecessary accounts and services from an application to reduce risk exposure?

  1. Error and exception handling

  2. Application hardening

  3. Application patch management

  4. Cross-site script prevention

Answer: B Explanation:

Hardening is the process of securing a system by reducing its surface of vulnerability.

Reducing the surface of vulnerability typically includes removing unnecessary functions and features, removing unnecessary usernames or logins and disabling unnecessary services.
