What is File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)? Why do you need it?

About File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) File integrity monitoring is implemented as a detection mechanism to monitor changes to important files and folders. File integrity monitoring is largely used as a security measure for detection and for meeting obligations such as compliance. By using file integrity monitoring, better control measures can be taken due to being able to track and provide data for alerts of activities on assets that are being monitored, such as potential unauthorized changes.
