We are excited to see the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG) kicking off 2015 in a big way. In its third year as an organization, the IDESG is gathering at the 12th plenary (January 28-30 in Atlanta), charging ahead with the creation of an Identity Ecosystem Framework that can help provide a foundation to underpin implementation of the NSTIC.
The IDESG has been fortunate to have Mary Ellen Condon serving as Executive Director for the past eight months, playing a direct role in cultivating these successful steps forward. Sadly, Mary Ellen’s time at the IDESG has come to an end, and we are all disappointed to see her go.
As Mary Ellen departs, we are thrilled to officially welcome Marc-Anthony Signorino as the IDESG’s new Executive Director. Marc-Anthony comes to the IDESG with a diverse array of experience in areas such as: cybersecurity, consumer online privacy and security, identity management issues, internet governance, and the protection of intellectual property rights. This work includes stints at the American Electronics Association (AeA), National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and eBay. His diverse background positions him well to interact with our diverse stakeholders—and he has been a very active member of the IDESG itself, serving as the Secretary of its Privacy Committee.
We are grateful to Mary Ellen for all of the work she’s put into pushing the IDESG forward in her time as Executive Director. Marc-Anthony: welcome…and we look forward to seeing the great things you accomplish with the IDESG in 2015 and beyond.
