Hey Omar I can finally tell you what the scenario is about. Its a scenario based on a hotel and its called Hotela Ceno and the you can identify basically all the threats. The network diagram is so easy has servers, routers, switches, guest and public WIFI also. Good luck with your exam all the best!.

Hello Shary I can finally let you know what the scenario is. The scenario is based on a hotel called Hotela Ceno. My teacher has told me you can mention any threats in exam its really easy. The network diagram mentions servers, switches, routers and public and guest WIFI. I will list you all the threats that you can mention for the exam and hope this helps. Do you have set tasks on different days?

1) Attack via WIFI
2) Attack via remote access
3) Misconfigured Firewall
4) Attack via client information
5) Weak encryption via VPN
6) Misconfigured access rights
7) Attack via breaking and entering
8) Misconfigured switches as there is two switches
9) Attack via the servers
10) Weak password policy as the scenario doesn't introduce a password policy
11) Leaked client information
12) Sabotage
13) Network Access via mobile devices

I hope this helps? Good luck for your exams!

Thanks armaan wish you best of luck for part b. What was the network managers name if you recall? And how did you find activity 3 what did you specifically mention as that activity is always hard for me

Thank you Morta you too all the best for part B. So for me my exams are split into different set tasks on different days. So today I had activity 1, Monday activity 2, Wednesday activity 3 Thursday activity 4 and Friday activity 5. The network managers name was called Regenta Virinio. I havent done activity 3 yet how did you find it? The way I will revise activity 3 is by looking at a examiner answer for the other scenario and help files my teacher has gave. There was one file where someone put keeping the servers secure keeping the rooms secure and then explained and gave alternatives I think this will be okay. Or option 2 is you list your protection measures you have for activity 2 and write a alternative.

I think I might know you lol are you friends with someone called Aaman?

Also was there anything specific about the network diagram that meant there were threats

There were quite a few things you can mention specific to the network for threats you can talk about eg attack via the network, attack via the servers misconfigured main switch etc and if its you cant mention the threat you can still mention it if that makes sense.

The threats I have mentioned were:

1) Attack via WIFI
2) Attack via remote access
3) Misconfigured Firewall
4) Attack via client information
5) Weak encryption via VPN
6) Misconfigured access rights
7) Attack via breaking and entering
8) Misconfigured switches as there is two switches
9) Attack via the servers
10) Weak password policy as the scenario doesn't introduce a password policy
11) Leaked client information
12) Sabotage
13) Network Access via mobile devices

Hi how are your exam days set? I am doing one activity per day for my set tasks. So I havent done part B yet I will be doing that on Thursday activity 4 and Friday I will have activity 5 for part B. Howcome it was difficult? is there anything I should be aware of? were the figures easy to understand? I heard from my teachers that activitys 4 and 5 are the easiest. Basically tip for scenario B activity 4 is that they give you the answers for each forensic evidence and they want you to re write everything in your own words eg method acquiring evidence evidence detail you can use the information in the scenario. Activity 5 is suggestions and improvements of the mistakes that were made within the organisation.
