      A shared area on a server

    Correct Answer
    A. A storage device, clearly labelled
    Explanation
    A storage device, clearly labelled, should be used to backup personal data because it provides a physical and secure way to store and retrieve data. By clearly labelling the storage device, it becomes easier to identify and access the specific backup files when needed. Additionally, using a storage device allows for offline access to the backup data, ensuring that it is not dependent on an internet connection or the availability of a specific website or server.

    Question 33 - How would you prevent theft of your laptop if you needed to leave your desk for a short period?

    • A.

      Leave it with a security guard

    • B.

      Leave it with your supervisor

    • C.

      . Close the lid

    • D.

      Use a security cable to secure it to the desk

    Correct Answer
    D. Use a security cable to secure it to the desk
    Explanation
    Using a security cable to secure the laptop to the desk is an effective way to prevent theft. This ensures that the laptop cannot be easily taken or moved without removing the cable, providing a physical barrier against theft. Leaving it with a security guard or supervisor may not be feasible or available in all situations, and simply closing the lid does not provide any physical security.

    Question 34 - Where would be a safe place to keep your MP3 player whilst you are in a public place?

    • A.

      Out of sight, on your person

    • B.

      Leave it on the bar

    • C.

      In your jacket pocket hanging over a chair

    • D.

      In your open bag on the floor

    Correct Answer
    A. Out of sight, on your person
    Explanation
    Keeping your MP3 player out of sight and on your person is a safe place to keep it while in a public place. This reduces the risk of it being stolen or lost. Leaving it on the bar or in your open bag on the floor makes it easily accessible to others, increasing the chances of it being taken. Placing it in your jacket pocket hanging over a chair also poses a risk as it could easily fall out or be taken without your knowledge. Therefore, the best option is to keep it on your person where it is secure and not easily visible to potential thieves.
