CompTIA Security+ Question F-32

A company hired Peter, an accountant. The IT administrator will need to create a new account for
Peter. The company uses groups for ease of management and administration of user accounts.
Peter will need network access to all directories, folders and files within the accounting department.
Which of the following configurations will meet the requirements?

A. Create a user account and assign the user account to the accounting group.
B. Create an account with role-based access control for accounting.
C. Create a user account with password reset and notify Peter of the account creation.
D. Create two accounts: a user account and an account with full network administration rights.

Answer: B

Role-based Access Control is basically based on a user’s job description. When a user is assigned a specific role in an environment, that user’s access to objects is granted based on the required tasks of that role. The IT administrator should, therefore, create an account with role-based access control for accounting for Peter.
