A network administrator is trying to download a valid file from an internal server. However, the process triggers an alert on a NMS tool. What condition describes this alert?

  • false negative
  • false positive
  • true positive
  • true negative
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    Alerts can be classified as follows:

    True Positive: The alert has been verified to be an actual security incident.
    False Positive: The alert does not indicate an actual security incident. Benign activity that results in a false positive is sometimes referred to as a benign trigger.
    An alternative situation is that an alert was not generated. The absence of an alert can be classified as:

    True Negative: No security incident has occurred. The activity is benign.
    False Negative: An undetected incident has occurred.
