CompTIA Security Exam Practice Questions Sample SY0 501 Q404

A company is deploying smartphones for its mobile salesforce. These devices are for personal and business use but are owned by the company. Sales personnel will save new customer data via a custom application developed for the company. This application will integrate with the contact information stored in the smartphones and will populate new customer records onto it.

The customer application’s data is encrypted at rest, and the application’s connection to the back office system is considered secure. The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) has concerns that customer contact information may be accidentally leaked due to the limited security capabilities of the devices and the planned controls.

Which of the following will be the MOST efficient security control to implement to lower this risk?

A. Implement a mobile data loss agent on the devices to prevent any user manipulation with the contact information.
B. Restrict screen capture features on the devices when using the custom application and the contact information.
C. Restrict contact information storage dataflow so it is only shared with the customer application.
D. Require complex passwords for authentication when accessing the contact information.

Correct Answer: C
