IDSA is a group of identity and security vendors, solution providers, and practitioners that acts as an independent source of thought leadership, expertise, and practical guidance on identity-centric approaches to security for technology professionals. As a nonprofit, IDSA facilitates community collaboration to help organizations improve IT risk management posture and reduce security incidents and breaches by providing vendor-neutral education, best practices, and resources. BeyondTrust has been a participating member of IDSA since joining the alliance in 2017.
The EAB is composed of eight elected industry leaders, who provide oversight and organizational direction for executing the mission, goals, policies, and programs of the IDSA. Morey’s addition to the Executive Advisory Board reflects BeyondTrust’s continued dedication to IDSA’s mission and our commitment to fostering collaboration across the industry to reduce global cyber risk.
“Since its founding, IDSA has helped to bridge solution providers and thought leaders that touch the various aspects of identity security, said Morey.” Marshalling the collective experience of its diverse working team groups, IDSA has made important steps towards forging and advancing a holistic framework around protecting identities—whether human, machine, privileged, unprivileged, on-premise, or in the cloud. I look forward to taking a more active role with the IDSA as we educate organizations on how to better secure themselves during a period of rapid technological and societal evolution, while confidently embracing their digital transformation aspirations.”
As enterprise environments trend towards further decentralization and complexity, an identity-defined/identity-centric approach to security becomes increasingly important. Over the past year, IDSA has published several research reports around identity security and developed a rich library of content, including publishing the Identity Security Framework. Some key topic areas this year have included protecting the remote workforce, and identity-centric zero trust.
Morey has more than 25 years of IT industry experience and has authored four Apress books: Identity Attack Vectors, Privileged Attack Vectors (2 editions), and Asset Attack Vectors. For more on Morey, check out this Q&A where he opens up about his most recent book and the state of cybersecurity.
