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, announced that Bernard Diwakar, chief enterprise security architect for Intuit, has joined its Customer Advisory Board (CAB).
