Beyond Digital Risk Protection

Turning intelligence into effective, proactive cyber defense mitigate threats before they turn into a breach

What is Digital Risk Protection?

Digital Risk Protection (DRP) is a proactive defensive strategy used by organizations to counter threats, improve efficiency, avoid unnecessary costs, and recover lost revenue. Digital risk protection provides security leaders and security teams with the ability to identify and address any existing cyber risk exposures before they turn into a breach. Digital risk protection requires a comprehensive approach combining automation and specialized expertise to fight threats while improving the overall cyber security posture. The importance of Digital Risk Protection is articulated by our CEO below

Cyberint offers an innovative approach to Digital Risk Protection (DRP), delivering comprehensive, best-of-breed use cases by leveraging a unique combination of Argos ™ - proprietary threat intelligence platform and a team of highly experienced threat intelligence analysts.

A Comprehensive DRP Platform Capabilities

A Comprehensive Digital Risk Protection platform leverages every method in a cyber protector’s toolkit and every piece of threat intelligence to identify cyber threats and risks, including:

Attack Surface Monitoring

Continuous monitoring of exploitable attack surface vulnerabilities. Attack surface analysis reveals all and helps you prioritize your efforts in lowering digital risk

Threat Intelligence

Sophisticated crawlers continuously scan all layers of the web including marketplaces, forums, applications, social media, paste sites, search engines, the dark, deep, and open web, and instant messaging. This provides full visibility into the threat landscape against your organization’s brand, business goals, employees, processes, and customers. Brand protection: Comprehensive brand protection including phishing detection and data leakage protection. VIP and social media protection are also included. Identify malicious entities that are impersonating your brand or targeting the executives and employees.

3rd-party Cyber Risk Management

Identify and measure cyber security risk within your supply chain and protect against 3rd-party risks

Threat landscaping

Identify active malicious campaigns, threat actors (e.g. Turla), tools (njRAT, Babuk Locker), and tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) used against your organization or an industry sector that your organization operates in. Ongoing digital risk surface monitoring will help identify and preempt malicious attacks. In addition, with forensic canvas (a tool that enables a deep dive into the attributes of specific entities and in-depth investigation into all IOC’s and threat actors) malicious attacks can be spotted and mitigated. The tool is able to do this as it creates correlations and smart connections to get from a single entity to an entire attack infrastructure and to the attacker behind it.

Fraud Protection

Reduce losses due to fraudulent activities. Distinguish between legitimate assets and malicious assets used for impersonating the organization for malicious gain. See how to prevent fraud here.

Cyber Exposure Mitigation

Quickly and effectively mitigate attack surface threats, risk, and exposure with a platform that brings together a comprehensive threat intelligence stack that relies on actionable data and resources, advanced remediation techniques, and alerts.

 

Addressing the Risks of Digital Transformation

Many enterprises are discovering that the path to digital transformation has multiple stumbling blocks for effective risk management. Organizational digital footprints incorporated into digital networks are vast and forever growing. More technologies, along with 3rd-party tools and services, are forming a complex ecosystem

It is increasingly challenging to secure the growing attack surface, prevent critical data loss, effectively manage the Shadow IT, and protect the organization's digital brand and identity.

The Importance of a Proactive Approach to Digital Risk Protection

The challenge is how businesses can mitigate the potential cyber security problems introduced by their digital transformation objectives.

Expanding attack surface

as organizations scale up their digital presence

Increased reliance on 3rd-party vendors and tools

without a well-thought-out 3rd-party cyber management program

Hazardous misalignment between IT security teams and the C-suite,

especially when it comes to mitigating risks and securing assets

Growing complexity of the digital tech stack:

Each connection, technology, and application added to the organization’s tech stack increases the complexity of securing its digital footprint.

Expanding digital supply chains:

Data and resources are stored in multiple places, stretching the supply chains that deliver digital services and regulate access to data.

Inherent weaknesses in legacy technologies

that are now deeply integrated into the expanding digital footprint

Increased importance of digital communications.

Any damage to a company's brand leads to sizable damage to the bottom line.

Risk Mitigation

Comprehensive insights into the organization’s digital footprint are a vital component of a comprehensive strategy to manage risks and mitigate exposure risks effectively.

Cost Reduction

24/7 automation of security tasks, including monitoring, identifying, and resolving digital threats, amplifies existing security resources, cutting costs while increasing efficiency. 

The most effective digital risk protection solutions also cover Shadow IT and Forgotten IT risk mitigation.

Increased Efficiency

Automation, combined with timely alerts and monitoring capabilities, empowers security teams to quickly and efficiently identify vulnerabilities.

DRP brings visibility and streamlines the organization's digital footprint, saving the internal resources wasted on maintaining and hosting Forgotten IT and Shadow IT resources.

Recovered Revenue

Successful cyber attacks directly cut into organizational revenue. In addition,  cyberattacks damage  brand reputation stemming from malicious websites selling stolen or counterfeit goods and phishing websites utilizing the company’s brand also have a direct negative effect on corporate revenues. 

Effective digital risk protection solutions mitigate these risks,  aiding in revenue recovery.

DRP Empowers Security Teams to Make Informed Decisions

Go Beyond Point-in-Time Assessments

Continuous monitoring provides a way of identifying gaps within the cyber security controls across 23 risk vectors, providing you with the ability to see how your security posture changes over time. 

Forecast Future Performance

Create action plans, develop model scenarios, track progress to identify paths to reduce cyber risk, and improve the allocation of the organization's resources and data.

Benchmark Your Program

An organization can gain unprecedented visibility into its security posture, including comprehensive industry benchmarks to assess the relative performance of your security.

Facilitate Data-Driven Security Conversations

Report on the effectiveness of your program to board members, cyber insurers, regulators, and customers with comprehensive reports that 

incorporate KPIs based on objective, independent, and broadly accepted standards.

Do I Need a DRP Solution?

Do you need to mitigate against digital risk?

Digital risk is endemic in all areas of the digital world. The recent acceleration of digital transformation trends due to the ongoing pandemic and a shift to work-from-home further exacerbates the risks. Security teams have been left to play catch up, as traditional security tools are quickly becoming redundant against rapidly evolving digital threats. Without a comprehensive digital transformation protection (DRP) strategy, an organization's cyber security and digital risk protection solutions cannot adequately mitigate digital risks.

Do you need to protect your brand identity and reputation?

The digital risk goes beyond direct cyberattacks on an organization and its employees. For consumer-facing brands such as retail, finance or eCommerce, the damage to an organization's brand and reputation resulting from brand-name hijacking on social media and app stores can be severe.

Examples of such attacks include social media phishing scams (see our coverage on Facebook phishing), account takeovers, or digital asset impersonation. 

Do you need ongoing mitigation? 

Risk mitigation never stops. After identifying and mitigating one threat, a new threat is inevitably going to appear. The continually evolving nature of the cyber threat landscape highlights the importance of integrating services that monitor, identify, and mitigate any possible new threats on an ongoing basis into a comprehensive DRP platform. 

 

To do their job, digital risk protection services must feed up-to-date and expert-curated intelligence into the DRP platform.

Gain visibility and benchmark your performance

Enhance performance and reduce the need for additional security reviews and analysis by implementing a DRP program to gain full visibility and access to benchmark reports.

Impact

An enterprise with thousands of sensitive digital assets scattered around the globe will benefit from a complete digital risk protection solution that is equipped with extensive Digital Asset Management abilities and is capable of leveraging threat intelligence gathered from public and confidential web data.

DRP platforms are not one-size-fits-all solutions. The right Digital Risk Protection solution will evolve with your business as it grows. It will be flexible to the businesses needs and adapt in realtime to evolving threats.

Smaller enterprises must still prioritize threat intelligence capability. It provides the organization with the ability to get accurate context and visibility into compromised assets and vulnerabilities impacting the organization. This includes threats that other types of tools can’t detect.

A partial solution may be more appropriate for smaller enterprises. It could include any one or a combination of the aforementioned digital risk components: digital asset management, 3rd-party risk, threat landscaping & hunting, fraud detection, and cyber exposure mitigation.

The Bottom Line

Shifting business into the digital sphere brings with it new risks. As an organization’s digital footprint grows in size, reach, and complexity, so does the threat landscape.

Malicious entities continuously expand their capabilities to invade an organization's systems, steal and tamper with public and confidential data, and impersonate valuable digital assets.

This has made it imperative that organizations invest in Digital Risk Protection to mitigate risk and protect themselves and their customers from malicious attacks and cyber threats.

Digital Risk Protection is an investment that is likely to repay itself several times over.

A DRP platform’s positive ROI isn't just gained through improved risk avoidance and advanced threat mitigation to the company's stored public and confidential data, but directly on its revenue generation capabilities.

Cyber attacks directly cut into organizational revenue. The damage to a brand’s reputation stemming from malicious websites selling stolen or counterfeit goods and phishing websites utilizing the company’s brand also directly affects corporate revenues.

Effective digital risk protection solutions mitigate these risks, aiding in revenue recovery and positively impacting the organization’s bottom line.
