Identity Defined Security Alliance Announces Winners of Identity Management Awards on Second Annual Identity Management Day

Adobe, Allstate, West-Mark, and Rajnish Bhatia of Comcast win Identity Management Awards as part of event to educate on the importance of managing and securing digital identities

DENVER, April 12, 2022 – The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), a nonprofit that provides vendor-neutral education and resources to help organizations reduce the risk of a breach by combining identity and security strategies, today announced the winners of the 2022 Identity Management Awards. The awards are part of the second annual Identity Management Day, hosted by the IDSA in partnership with the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA). Winners were selected by a panel of judges from the IDSA and NCA for their commitment to identity management and security as an enabler to business operations while reducing risks.

“The Identity Management Awards recognize end-user organizations that have implemented an identity management and security project that exemplifies the use of best practices while providing overall value to the business. In addition, the success of an identity management initiative is dependent on a leader who evangelizes and progresses identity as a critical component of security initiatives in their organization,” said Julie Smith, executive director of the IDSA. “On behalf of the IDSA and NCA, I would like to congratulate the winners. We hope that other companies can look to them for best practices on Identity Management Day and beyond.”
