The longer answer: Threat intelligence involves collating, interpreting, and distributing insights about an organizations strengths, weaknesses and emerging threats. For modern businesses, many of these threats manifest themselves across online landscapes, hence their relevance to digital risk management.
Businesses leverage their threat intelligence insights to build robust security strategies, reinforcing vulnerable assets, developing threat-specific defences, and expanding their security perimeters.

The longer answer: Digital Risk Protection equips businesses to identify, monitor, and solve the risks surrounding their presence online. These risks include cybersecurity, brand reputation, and compliance management. For each of those three objectives, the threats, and the solutions, pertain directly to digital shadows.
The term ‘digital shadows’ refers to an organization’s digital footprint, and the traces and ripples it creates online. Unfortunately, malicious actors exploit these shadows, stealing assets and fuelling further crimes like fraud and cyberattacks. Businesses must therefore monitor their digital shadows, ensuring they’re not leaving vulnerable assets online, and enforcing any infringements or suspicious activity. Digital Risk Protection tools accomplish this goal, using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to detect anomalies within a company’s digital ecosystem.
Safeguarding digital channels with a robust tool like EBRAND’s X-RAY plays a vital role in today’s digital landscape. Overall, Digital Risk Protection fortifies online reputations, protects sensitive assets, and ensures reliable compliance.
Commercial fishing companies create new technologies for effective technologies for scouring the oceans and pulling up sea creatures over the years. On the other hand, a shoreside fisherman might manually craft a unique lure to catch a certain species of fish in a specific stretch of coastline. The fishing world’s digital counterparts iterate on existing hooks to trick new targets, and tailor their attacks with specific victims in mind.
Here’s ten common types of phishing attack that hackers might level at your team:
- Spear phishing
Spear phishing scams occur when hackers personalize their attacks, targeting specific individuals with information, names, convincing reference points to enhance their deception.
- Business Email Compromise (BEC)
Spear phishing becomes a BEC attack when it specifically targets employees using their business email. Hackers often send BEC attacks from accounts spoofing a target’s colleague, with the intention of stealing company resources.
High-value spear phishing, AKA whaling, targets business leaders and c-suite executives.
- Clone Phishing
In clone phishing attacks, hackers create near-identical clones of legitimate digital assets like websites, login pages, or previously sent emails, filling them with malware to trick their targets.
Phishing attacks use a variety of channels and attack vectors. Security experts refer to phishing attacks that use SMS, text messages, or WhatsApp as ‘smishing’.
- Angler Phishing
Hackers spoof legitimate social media accounts to deceive victims, in attacks known as ‘angler phishing’. These fake assets also add evidence to phishing attacks on other channels.
- Search Engine Phishing
Search engine phishing involves advanced marketing tactics, as hackers create organic SEO listings or even PPC campaigns to promote their attacks. When their fraudulent, malware-laden pages achieve decent levels of traffic, search engine phishing attacks siphon data and ecommerce profits by deceiving would-be customers.
In tabnapping attacks, hackers take advantage of a victim’s tendency to lose track of their tabs. Phishing malware opens a fake tab, which blends in with legitimate workflows to steal assets and spread further hacks.
Wishing, or voice phishing, involves phishing attacks via vocal channels, particularly phone calls and voice messages.
- AI Phishing
Hackers keep up with trends in AI, taking advantage of AI chatbots, deepfake audio and video, and auto-generated fake pages to trick their targets in AI phishing attacks.
Crucially, hackers develop new phishing strategies all the time, innovating and iterating to bypass ageing defences. Digital Risk Protection helps businesses detect existing phishing campaigns, and pre-empt new techniques as they evolve.
MITRE’s ATT&CK framework (Adversarial Tactics, Techiniques, & Common Knowledge) catalogues the types of cyberattacks that hackers use to trick, infiltrate, and exploit victims. With a Digital Risk Protection solution in place, businesses detect and monitor potentially malicious TTPs targeting their brand, team, or clients. EBRAND’s X-RAY scans emerging threats, and also compares a company’s assets with Common Knowledge records of existing attacks, reinforcing security strategies with third-party intelligence.
Digital Risk Protection also integrates with cybersecurity frameworks like the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. The NIST framework provides guidance and best practice advice to help businesses understand, manage, and minimize threats online. As established, the X-RAY RADAR prioritizes understanding, and the TRACKER tool supports threat management and minimization.
