can anyone provide a management freindly low tech summary of what the risks are in not using CHECKSUM and using torn page detection for "page verifacation".

What exactly is "page verifacation".

And what exactly are either checking/detecting for? Why is one considered better than the other?

Some of the links I have read have confused me even further so some comments much more preferable.
