D. Preventive AUP is pretty obviously trying to prevent things from happening. It's not A. Detective because it doesn't detect anything. It's a policy. It's not B. Compensating because it isn't making up for any other policy included in the question. It's not C. Corrective because it doesn't correct anything on it's own, it's simply a policy that is to be followed. So it could only be D. Preventive, as it prevents people from doing things that might compromise the network.

Selected Answer: B
It's impossible for a policy to be a detective, corrective, or preventative control as a policy CANNOT stop/prevent, or detect any attack in any way. It has to be B

Due to the consequences a user will face if they breach the AUP, it acts as a deterrent. It does actually prevent a lot.

Selected Answer: D
preventive - an acceptable use policy enforces rules to users to use company resources. example - company A states that in order to access files in the company server you must connect to your company VPN when working from home. This prevents you from connecting from an insecure network.
