Out of all the millions of words that have been said about cybersecurity on federal information technology, very few words have been given to one of the most important concepts for securing data: Integrity.

Maurice Uenuma is the vice president of Federal and Enterprise at Tripwire. He joined host John Gilroy on this week’s Federal Tech Talk and he said cybersecurity should be reframed as an integrity problem first and foremost. He maintains that classic File Integrity Monitoring (FMI) is too narrowly defined. This suggests that the concept of data integrity should be expanded into some of the concepts encouraged by an organization called the Center for Internet Security (CIS).
