Information integrity is one of the key security objectives for all organizations. Organizations must deploy integrity controls as part of a systematic, comprehensive security program. Integrity controls can be deployed at various layers of the organization's infrastructure, depending on the type of data and the state (e.g., at rest, in motion, or in use) in which the data exists. This Decision Point considers the most appropriate technical approaches for protecting the integrity of electronic information.
