About Us

DigitalRCP is a unique effort focused on helping to address an organizations digital risk and compliance needs. With the increasing reliance on electronic communication, mobile devices, digital presence and social media, many organizations are unaware of the risk they undertaking - until it's too late. Our co-founders, Eric Cook and Deborah Gonzalez, bring a series of unique skill-sets to help clients not only assess their risk, but how to mitigate it and develop a strategy that can produce results.
