The correct answer is D.
OBJ-1.4: The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a prescriptive framework. It is not a law but a formal policy created by the credit card industry that organizations must follow to accept credit and bank cards for payment. Quarterly required external vulnerability scans must be run by a PCI DSS approved scanning vendor (ASV). This question may seem beyond the scope of the exam. Still, the objectives allow for “other examples of technologies, processes, or tasks about each objective may also be included on the exam although not listed or covered” in the objectives’ bulletized lists. The exam tests the equivalent of 4 years of hands-on experience in a technical cybersecurity job role. The content examples listed in the objectives are meant to clarify the test objectives and should not be construed as a comprehensive listing of this examination’s content. Therefore, questions like this are fair game on test day. That said, your goal isn’t to score 100% on the exam; it is to pass it. Don’t let questions like this throw you off on test day. If you aren’t sure, take your best guess and move on!
