Indeed!

Many of the standard algorithms have been compromised, however, and
increasing key strength is not necessarily a guarantor of security/ arbiter
of authenticity. As a good first step I'd recommend that you talk to your IT
department about implementing a very robust, self-correcting filesystem.
Sun's ZFS is a good place to start as many of the checks you mention are
built into the file management system.
