In computing terms, 'integrity' is used in a sentence such as, "we have a system in place to ensure data integrity". In this context, it means that the data is not corrupt.

So the sentence above means that something has been put in place to prevent data corruption.

Note that 'data integrity' does not mean it is accurate or even correct. It simply means that it has not been changed by unauthorised users or programs.
