We’ll share a mental model for how to get to least privilege in your AWS environment. We’ll talk about the foundations and security controls that you can implement on your first day in AWS, and then we’ll share techniques for continuously updating access across your environments over time. You’ll learn about creating logical isolation boundaries for your data and applications using AWS accounts, applying guardrails to allow your developers to experiment and innovate safely using identity and access management policies, and right-sizing access permissions using AWS IAM Access Analyzer.
