CISSP PRACTICE QUESTIONS – 20210115

Effective CISSP Questions

As the customer relationship management (CRM) system owner, you collaborate with data owners and other stakeholders to determine the compensating security control for replacing a baseline control. Which of the following best describes the process you are conducting?
A. Validation
B. Verification
C. Tailoring
D. Scoping

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 C. Tailoring.

Scoping refers to reviewing baseline security controls and selecting only those controls that apply to the IT system you’re trying to protect. For example, if a system doesn’t allow any two people to log on to it at the same time, there’s no need to apply a concurrent session control.

Tailoring refers to modifying the list of security controls within a baseline so that they align with the mission of the organization. For example, an organization might decide that a set of baseline controls applies perfectly to computers in their main location, but some controls aren’t appropriate or feasible in a remote office location. In this situation, the organization can select compensating security controls to tailor the baseline to the remote location.
