Reviewing Data

Reviewing the entirety of the data available is imperative to detecting tampering. Consider Figure 1 from Lesson 1, the tamper event could have been missed if the analysis was not reviewed. In that situation the average level did not change significantly, but in other situations tampering has materially changed the average level and could affect a recommendation.

If your monitors produce hourly results and/or graphical results, a short analysis of all data could protect your client from fraudulent tampering.
