Data Integrity Challenges and Workflow-based Solutions

Presented by Von Welch and Randy Heiland, Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research

Our information technology (IT) infrastructure is not perfect and data can be corrupted by means both malicious and random. This talk covers some of the issues with IT infrastructure that lets data corruption creep in and NSF-funded work by the authors to augment a popular workflow management system (Pegasus) to provide increased scientific data assurances.

Remote Access to the Brown Bag: Brown Bag presentations are broadcast live via Zoom. Go to to view and listen to each presentation. (Instructions: At IU, what is Zoom, and how do I know how to use it? [UITS KB]; or, How do I join a Zoom meeting? [vendor documentation])

The Digital Library Brown Bag Series presentations focus on local practices and emerging trends, and are intended to encourage participation in digital library and digital research projects and initiatives. The Series began in 2003 with a focus on digital libraries – standards, tools, and trends in the field – but has since expanded to include all areas and topics relevant to digital scholarship, including digital humanities and open access publishing, and continues to cultivate interest from both IU and beyond.
