Effective CISSP Questions

Today is the first day in 2020! You start over to review the basic concepts of the CISSP. Which of the following information security properties or objectives is not defined in the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002?
A. Non-repudiation
B. Accountability
C. Authenticity
D. Availability

Kindly be reminded that the suggested answer is for your reference only. It doesn’t matter whether you have the right or wrong answer. What really matters is your reasoning process and justifications.

My suggested answer is B. Accountability.


It is absolutely right that the FISMA is to enforce “accountability,” but the question is asking the information security properties or objectives defined in the “definitions.”

CIA, nonrepudiation and authenticity are defined.
