I believe "A" is the correct answer. Lets say If I collect PII and use a cloud SaaS or PaaS to process the PII, I think I am the processor and not the cloud service provider. This is because, the cloud service provider may not even know that I am processing PII. Let me know your views on this.
The provider is doing the processing, even without knowing what they are processing. The provider does information processing on behalf of the data owner, according to most data privacy laws.
A suggestion on the below question. You may want to specifically mention "physical access" in option 3 of the question as it can be mistaken for logical access which can an answer for this question.
I am planning to renew my subscription for question database. But I heard that the CCSP Syllabus is changing from August. If I buy the database now, will it be updated once the syllabus is changed?
I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand your question, but here's what I think you're asking (please correct me if I'm getting it wrong): "If I have access to the Sybex online practice questions, will those questions be updated in August to reflect the new DCO?"
And the answer is: unfortunately, no. For a couple reasons:
- The update will require a whole new edition of the book (which I'm working on right now).
- The Study Guide book will hopefully come out in late August, maybe September. Hopefully. Publishing is a very slow process.
- The Practice Tests book probably won't come out until October.
My recommendation: take the exam before August, when the changes take effect. Three months should give you enough study time.
However, if that's not enough (if you have kids, hobbies, a real life, where finding time to study can be tricky), then you shouldn't be too worried about taking it after August, anyway...the new DCO doesn't have many changes, and most aren't all that significant (mostly changing wording or order of existing elements). The first editions of both books should still be useful for study purposes (although I would never discourage anyone from buying more of my stuff!).
Great question-- thanks for asking!
