Data Integrity

Organizations’ data, such as database records, system files, configurations, user files, applications, and customer data, are all potential targets of data corruption, modification, and destruction. In the stages prior to an attack, companies must be able to identify their infrastructure and develop a protection capability. During a data integrity attack, companies must be able to detect the occurrence and respond in accordance with their response plan. Lastly, after an attack the company must be able to effectively and efficiently recover. In accordance to this methodology, the NCCoE has developed three data integrity projects that are dedicated to solving businesses most pressing cybersecurity challenges.
