CompTIA Security+ Question I-47

A business has set up a Customer Service kiosk within a shopping mall. The location will be staffed by an employee using a laptop during the mall business hours, but there are still concerns regarding the physical safety of the equipment while it is not in use. Which of the following controls would BEST address this security concern?

A. Host-based firewall
B. Cable locks
C. Locking cabinets
D. Surveillance video

Answer: C

Locking cabinets can be used to protect backup media, documentation and other physical artefacts. In this case a locking cabinet will keep the company’s Customer Service kiosk under lock and key when not in use.
