Working with least-privilege access
Least privilege is an important principle in identity and access management (IAM) that ensures that users are only given the minimum level of access needed to perform their job functions. This principle is based on the idea that by limiting the access of users, organizations can reduce the risk of security breaches and data loss.
In an ideal scenario, a user should only have access to the specific resources and data that are necessary for them to perform their job. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information and prevents users from accidentally or intentionally causing damage to the system. By implementing least privilege, organizations can ensure that users are only able to access the resources they need to perform their job, while preventing them from accessing or modifying sensitive information.
Least privilege also helps organizations to comply with various regulatory requirements, such as the General Data Protection Regulation...
