CompTIA Security+ Question C-95

Emily, an employee, tethers her smartphone to her work PC to bypass the corporate web security gateway while connected to the LAN. While Emily is out at lunch her PC is compromised via the tethered connection and corporate data is stolen. Which of the following would BEST prevent this from occurring again?

A. Disable the wireless access and implement strict router ACLs.
B. Reduce restrictions on the corporate web security gateway.
C. Security policy and threat awareness training.
D. Perform user rights and permissions reviews.

Answer: C

BYOD (In this case Emily’s smart phone) involves the possibility of a personal device that is infected with malware introducing that malware to the network and security awareness training will address the issue of the company’s security policy with regard to BYOD.
