CompTIA Security Plus Mock Test Q371

A. Guards
C. Bollards
D. Spike strip

Correct Answer: A
Section: Compliance and Operational Security

A guard can be intimidating and respond to a situation and in a case where you want to limit an individual’s access to a sensitive area a guard would be the most effective.

Incorrect Answers:
B: CCTV will only serve to record the perimeter breach and is not as intimidating as placing a guard to limit the individual’s access.
C: Bollards are designed to keep big objects from breaching a perimeter and not individuals who can still slip through between the bollards.
D: A spike strip will only immobilize vehicles trying to breach a perimeter and will not keep individuals out. Individuals can just step over the spike strips and still gain access.
