DENVER, USA – The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), a nonprofit that provides free vendor-neutral education and resources to help organizations reduce the risk of a breach by combining identity and security strategies, has announced that Manish Gupta, director of global cybersecurity services for Starbucks, has joined its Customer Advisory Board (CAB).
Manish Gupta will provide user perspective and guidance on the vision, mission, and work of the IDSA
In addition, Banyan Security, Keyfactor, ObserveID, Simeio and strongDM have also become IDSA vendor members.
“Identity has an array of applications, from an enabler for ecommerce and socio-economic efforts, a protector when viewed from a cybersecurity lens, or a key component of digital transformation. All activities in the cyberworld (human or machine) that need to understand ‘who,’ rely on identity and this reliance will exponentially grow in years to come as we move to Metaverse,” said Gupta.
“I look forward to working with the IDSA and sharing my knowledge and experience to develop guidance that will help other organizations prioritize identity within their cybersecurity strategies.”
