Digital Risk Protection

The systems and processes businesses use to protect digital assets and internal resources from external threats like cyberattacks and data breaches.

Digital risk protection or DRP includes tools, strategies, and tactics to mitigate digital risk and protect the organization’s digital assets from cyberattacks. The overarching goal is to support the organization’s digital transformation efforts while managing and protecting its complex digital landscape. DRP efforts focus on protecting the organization’s external-facing digital assets from cybersecurity risk, insider threats, data leaks, automation risk, cloud technology risk, and third-party risk.

Digital Risk Protection vs. Cyber Threat Intelligence

DRP systems are often considered synonymous with cyber threat intelligence (CTI) solutions, even though the two ideas are not the same. If anything, DRP is an extension of CTI. The main focus of digital threat intelligence is to improve the organization’s security posture so it can better withstand cyberattack attempts. DRP is more proactive since it focuses on keeping up with the organization’s expanding threat landscape, detecting threats, and preventing cyberattacks.
