Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What are the three major considerations that apply to Cyberspace Operations?

    • A.

      Policy, Security, Authority.

    • B.

      Authority, Security, Law.

    • C.

      Law, Authority, Policy.

    • D.

      Security, Policy, Law.

    Correct Answer
    C. Law, Authority, Policy.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Law, Authority, Policy. In Cyberspace Operations, the first consideration is the legal framework that governs these operations, ensuring compliance with regulations and laws. Authority comes next, as it determines who has the power and responsibility to make decisions and take action in cyberspace. Finally, policy outlines the guidelines and procedures that govern the use of cyberspace, including security measures and best practices. This order of considerations ensures that operations are conducted within a legal framework, with clear lines of authority and well-defined policies.

    Which Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) subsystem gathers data on the process and sends commands to the processor?

    • A.

      Supervisory System.

    • B.

       Remote Terminal Unit.

    • C.

      Human Machine Interface.

    • D.

      Programmable Logic Controller

    Correct Answer
    A. Supervisory System.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the Supervisory System. This subsystem in SCADA is responsible for gathering data on the process and sending commands to the processor. It acts as the central control unit and interacts with other components of the SCADA system to monitor and control the process effectively. The supervisory system collects data from remote terminal units and human-machine interfaces and then processes and displays the information to the operator for decision-making. It also sends commands to the processor to control the process based on the received data and operator inputs.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) subsystem connects to sensors in the process, converting sensor signals to digital data?

    • A.

       Supervisory System.

    • B.

      Remote Terminal Unit.

    • C.

       Human Machine Interface.

    • D.

       Programmable Logic Controller

    Correct Answer
    B. Remote Terminal Unit.
    Explanation
    The Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) is a component of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system that connects to sensors in the process. It is responsible for converting the analog sensor signals into digital data that can be transmitted to the supervisory system for monitoring and control. The RTU acts as an interface between the sensors and the SCADA system, allowing for real-time data acquisition and remote control of the process. The other options, such as the Supervisory System, Human Machine Interface, and Programmable Logic Controller, are not directly involved in converting sensor signals to digital data.

  • 12. 

    Which threat vector is considered more of an annoyance than an attack?

    • A.

      Virus

    • B.

      Spam

    • C.

      Spyware

    • D.

      Phishing

    Correct Answer
    B. Spam
    Explanation
    Spam is considered more of an annoyance than an attack because it involves the sending of unsolicited and unwanted messages, typically through email. While spam can be a nuisance and disrupt productivity, it does not directly cause harm to a system or steal sensitive information like other threat vectors such as viruses, spyware, or phishing attacks. However, spam can still be a gateway for other types of attacks if users unknowingly click on malicious links or download harmful attachments contained within the spam messages.
