An IS auditor finds that conference rooms have active network ports. Which of the following is
MOST important to ensure?
The corporate network is using an intrusion prevention system (IPS)
This part of the network is isolated from the corporate network
A single sign-on has been implemented in the corporate network
Antivirus software is in place to protect the corporate network
If the conference rooms have access to the corporate network, unauthorized users may be able to
connect to the corporate network; therefore, both networks should be isolated either via a firewall
or being physically separated. An I PS would detect possible attacks, but only after they have
occurred. A single sign-on would ease authentication management. Antivirus software would
reduce the impact of possible viruses; however, unauthorized users would still be able to access
the corporate network, which is the biggest risk.
