Cyber security is all about protecting information/ data kept on computers. Computers have been used to store sensitive information for nearly as long as they've been around. Whenever there is something of value, there will always be people who are trying to access it.

Cyber terrorists, hackers and their tools are only getting more smart. There is more and more attacks where the complexity and the techniques used are becoming more intuitive and also dangerous.

This just shows the need for increased security surrounding anything technological these days as absolutely everything is hackable. Nowadays it's not just about hacking things but also about not even letting the owners of the data know they've been hacked.

If something technological has been hacked how does one know? This is where the idea for my project comes from.

My project will allow the user to check to see if their file has in fact been changed.

My project is an integrity checker; it will allow users to check if their document/ file has been adjusted.
