Cloud Security Masterclass: Locking Down the Security of AWS IAM-Part 1

Presented by

Josh Stella, Co-Founder and CEO of Fugue

About this talk

If you use Amazon Web Services (AWS), you’re probably making extensive use of the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) service. It’s a powerful tool for managing access to your AWS resources that’s essentially a new kind of network in the cloud. But AWS IAM security can become quite complex. Recent high-profile cloud-based data breaches have involved AWS IAM and aren’t the result of simple customer mistakes. Rather, advanced cloud misconfiguration attacks exploit IAM misconfigurations that compliance controls and security professionals often miss. In this Cloud Security Masterclass, Fugue co-founder Josh Stella digs into how AWS IAM works to help you think more critically about the security for your AWS use cases. You’ll understand how to identify AWS IAM misconfiguration vulnerabilities you may have missed before—and how malicious actors exploit them.
