In order to automate host characteristic monitoring you can compare baselines and snapshots with syslog.
The following should be taken into account when accepting the residual risk inherent in the project.
All of the above
What is the high water mark for an information system?
Highest Potential Impact value assigned to each Security Objective (AIC) for all Security Categories resident on the system and the overall classification of the system.

Which risk comes from a failure of the controls to properly mitigate risk?
A. Inherent risk
C. Control Risk
D. All of the above
Open Source Security (OSSEC) is what?
A host based security system that monitors for changes
What tool would be best to automatically detect your network and construct a complete and easy to view network map?
Which NIST special publication is a guide for Applying the Risk Management Framework to Federal Information Systems: A Security Life Cycle Approach?
NIST SP 800 37
Which of the following is a part of the Examine Method?
Inspecting the physical security measures
If the cost of controls exceeds the benefit the organization may choose to accept the risk instead.
Which of the following families of controls belongs to the technical class of controls?
Identification and Authentication
Which tier of Risk Management is associated with Enterprise Architecture?
Tier 2 Mission (Business Process)
In NIST SP 800 53 the security control structure consists of all the following components except for:
All of these are in the security control structure:
– Priority and baseline allocation
– Supplemental guidance
– Control enhancements
Kismet is different from a normal network sniffer such as Wireshark or tcpdump because it separates and identifies different wireless networks in the area.

A. Request : Approval : Build : Impact Assessment : If successful Implement
B. Request : Impact Assessment : Approval : Build and or Test : Implement
D. Request : Impact Assessment : Build and or Test : Approval : Implement
The threat source is highly motivated and sufficiently capable and controls to prevent the vulnerability from being exercised are ineffective. Which likelihood rating does this describe?
Which of the following is not part of the process for assessing security controls according to NIST SP 800 53A 1?
Which step of a risk assessment uses the history of system attacks?
Step 2: Threat Identification
In risk management people and information and technology are examples of?
What type of analysis involves using scales to suit circumstances and allows for quick identification of potential risks as well as vulnerable assets and resources?
B. Audit Analysis
C. Qualitative Analysis
D. Cost/benefit analysis
NIST SP 800 30 defines risk as a function of the likelihood of a given threat source exercising a particular potential vulnerability and the resulting impact of that adverse event on the organization.
One strategy for determining the proper level of acceptable risk is to:
Determine a point where cost of mitigation is less than cost of loss
