Definition - What does Highly Protected Risk mean?

Insuranceopedia explains Highly Protected Risk

Burglary is a risk for any homeowner. However, by taking defensive measures like installing smart surveillance devices, timers to regulate lighting, and dead bolt locks, burglary can be reclassified into a highly protected risk.

Highly protected risks are less risky to insure; therefore, coverage for them is usually sold at a lower premium.
