  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. A database where records can be networked to other records through paths that are different from the hierarchy itself

2. The process of detecting certain anomalous behavior to prevent viruses

3. Virtual machine;restricts the applets access to system resources

4. Attacker sends multiple IP ping requests to a receiving device-likely via a router

5. Each process has its own memory space

6. Ensures seperation of duties by ensuring programmers do not have access to production code.

13. A database whose components exist in multiple physical locations. This type of database can be hierarchical or network or relational or object or any other design.

14. A part of the overall object-oriented application design - the objects in an object database include datarecords as well as their methods (application code).

15. Data is arranged in a tree structure with parent records at the top of the database and a hierarchy of child records in successive layers

16. The concept refers to the ability of someone to deduce something about sensitive information that's beyond normal reach because of its sensitivity level.

17. is a high-level description of a system--typically containing no details.

18. Assures that no individuals or objects (such as programs that make requests of databases) have excessive functions on a system.

19. Records structured in heirarchy

20. one command at a time

21. spiral method; nested version of waterfall method; estimated costs and schedules are revised at the end of the assessment Decision to proceed/cancel project is revisited after each risk assessment

22. An attack that invloves sending a user to a different webpage they did not click on. It can lead to DOS attacks.

23. formal documents in place and pro-active

24. The act of limiting running processes ability to view or modify memory and cache that's assigned to another process.

25. A special-purpose database that's used for business research and decision support and planning; typical databases support daily business operations. This type of database is also used for decision support.

30. Online Analytical Processing

31. Attribute related to another table

32. A database with relationships between data sets with the freedom of a network database - but without the constraints of a hierarchical database. The structure is defined by its schema.
