Rethinking Least Privilege: Dynamic Strategies for an Over-Privileged Cloud

Presented by

John Martinez, DAM Evangelist, StrongDM

About this talk

Get ready to level up your cloud security game! We're rolling out a no-nonsense, straight-talking webinar where we tackle the gap between the theory of least privilege and the messy real-world implementations that could leave your cloud defenses looking more Swiss cheese than Fort Knox. This session will zero in on why the classic approach to Principle of Least Privilege is often more idealistic than practical. Let's face it: your "least privilege" setups may be handing out keys to your castle like free loot drops. Might be time to respawn your strategies. Why You Should Join: • Identify where your least privilege strategy might be giving away too many permissions and how it’s like over-leveling your noobs – risky and unnecessary. • Get straight to the practical stuff – actionable ways to go from static, long-term access rights (think: permanent power-ups) to a dynamic, just-in-time access system that actually matches the pace of your cloud environment. • Swap notes on real-world scenarios, sharing the wins and face-palms that come with managing access in complex cloud setups. • You'll learn best practices that can be put into play immediately, reducing risk without getting bogged down in bureaucracy or slowing your devs down. Join us to learn some new trade secrets and defenses that can adapt as quickly as your next sprint. We'll break down those static policies that might be overshooting the mark and arm you with slick, automated strategies fit for a dynamically scaling cloud world.
