What is the Digital Estate for Communications?

If we think of our physical estate as the buildings and grounds and physical things that make up UCC, the digital estate is the online equivalent and a handy term to describe all the digital systems and platforms that allow UCC to operate in an online world. The digital estate for communications, then, is a collective term for the websites, social media and other digital channels that we use for communications.
