This is the third post in a series of eight on the five pillars to actionable cloud security. For the rest of the series, visit the Five Pillars blog page here.
Since the cloud isn’t an on-premises solution, securing access is a natural starting point. Traditionally, customers look at identity management and access management from the standpoint of users. Users, which can be further categorized into groups, will also have associated roles, and permissions associated with these roles.
Even within similar organizations – example, a company may have multiple groups within a larger development organization, with different permissions associated both to the roles those users have and the groups to which they belong. It is not necessarily a linear relationship.'As organizations look to leverage cloud services for transformation, they must be sure to understand those services in terms of how they are accessed and managed.' ~@rkturner1Click To Tweet
