What cybersecurity methods never get outdated, no matter how the threats evolve?
Question 10 has an incorrect answer, "Intrusion detection systems". "Intrusion prevention systems" is the correct answer.
Agreed, that and question 2 has IPS as a choice twice. 
The answer to the question number 10 is not correct, please check again. It should be Intrusion prevention systems
Question no.2, answer 1 & 4 are the same, one of them should be IDS (correct answer) and of course answer to question no.10 should be IPS.
Please note that question number 2 has a double correct answer and I challenge the answer to number 10, it should be IPS, not IDS.
