Increasingly document content must be protected against leakage as well as hacking and theft. Failure to prevent these can result in prosecution and reputational loss. Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a valuable tool preventing attackers from unauthorized disclosure whether it is insiders trying to compromise security or hackers stealing documents and then trying to make use of their contents. DRM assists demonstrating compliance with regulatory privacy requirements for documents containing personal data. Content can be safely shared without running the risk of compromise through hacking recipients systems as well as your own.

This infographic explains the importance of document Digital Rights Management (DRM), presenting statistics about the prevalence of of data breaches involving documents, as well as the financial and legal consequences of such a data breach. This infographic's color palette is dominated by blue, but the accents of orange and red are not incorporated consistently throughout the design, making them appear out of place. This infographic's content includes data that is relevant to the main subject of DRM. The text is sometimes difficult to read, due to a lack of contrast with the background, and isn't balanced by visual elements or enhanced by data visualizations. If this design could visually represent document security, and highlight each data point with an icon or pie chart, it could create a layout that is more readable and less crowded with small text. Overall, text presentation and lack of visual elements reduce the effectiveness of this infographic. We'd give this an F.
