Analyst(s): Consult the Board Research Team


This summary contains input from ten members regarding their processes for managing data integrity and recovery after a data integrity attack caused by unauthorized insertion, deletion, or modification. We begin this summary by examining members’ reactions to State Farm’s contention that relying on backups is insufficient for recovery after a data integrity attack. From there, we dive deep on members’ data integrity strategies, including which tools members use and how members perform data integrity checks and correct or remove corrupted data from interconnected systems.
