Old school security wisdom in an age of rapid digital transformation: IT and Access Security best practices are tried and true. We know how to eliminate the vast majority of threats that face a corporate enterprise. However because of the speed and complexities with digital transformation and cloud adoption these are often not easily adhered to. We will focus on one specific use case; Applying least privileged to your IaaS infrastructure.
