Continuing Momentum with New Members, New Framework, and Security Leader Panel at RSA Conference 2020

It’s only 56 days in to 2020 and we are already excited about the continuing momentum into the new decade!  We are pleased to announce two new vendor members to the Alliance — Avatier and ForgeRock — and thrilled to add their voices and expertise to our team of identity and security leaders. In addition, we have provided our latest iteration of the Identity Defined Security Framework for community review and look forward to hosting a security leader panel discussion next week during the RSA Conference in San Francisco.

As part of the mission of the IDSA, vendor members collaborate to develop best practices and practical guidance for organizations seeking to improve their security posture though identity-centric security strategies. The latest iteration of the Identity Defined Security Framework gives security practitioners a flexible library of best practices, security outcomes, and implementation approaches that also map to well-known security and compliance frameworks and approaches, including NIST, HIPAA, CARTA and Zero Trust.  Identity and security practitioners are encouraged to participate in the community review of the latest iteration
