DENVER, July 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), an industry alliance that helps organizations leverage existing cybersecurity investments to establish a stronger security posture, today announced that Clint Maples, chief information security officer for global staffing firm Robert Half, has joined its Customer Advisory Board (CAB). Maples will provide user perspective and guidance on the vision, mission, and work of the IDSA. In addition, Fischer Identity, MorganFranklin Consulting, Semperis, and Strivacity, have also become members of the IDSA.

According to a recent study conducted by Dimensional Research and sponsored by the IDSA, the majority of IT security and identity professionals surveyed said they have experienced an identity-related breach at their company within the past two years, and nearly all of them reported they believe these breaches were preventable. “Identity-related security is a work in progress. I look forward to working with the IDSA and sharing my knowledge and experience helping companies build and rapidly scale their security programs,” said Maples, who previously served as CISO at SigFig and LendUS.

Maples will join fellow IDSA CAB members from Adobe and Red Ventures to present at Identiverse, a leading identity industry event. The virtual session will cover deploying identity-centric security strategies; employing consistent definition of policies; improving end-to-end visibility of identity context across the security stack; and leveraging an improved monitoring, logging and auditing, for more effective SecOps.
