CompTIA Security+ Question D-57

Which of the following assessment techniques would a security administrator implement to ensure that systems and software are developed properly?

A. Baseline reporting
B. Input validation
C. Determine attack surface
D. Design reviews

Answer: D

When implementing systems and software, an important step is the design of the systems and software. The systems and software should be designed to ensure that the system works as intended and is secure. The design review assessment examines the ports and protocols used, the rules, segmentation, and access control in the system or application. A design review is basically a check to ensure that the design of the system meets the security requirements.
