Is Least Privileged Even Possible?
Are role models and least privileged at odds? When defining roles, we tend to grant more access in one role to avoid having to create multiple similar roles or managing exceptions. So where does that leave our pursuit of implementing a least privileged access model in a zero trust environment?

Myths of Least Privilege Management (POLP)
The principle of Least Privilege (PoLP) requires granting identities only the minimum permissions needed to perform their tasks. However, many technical and human factors make PoLP difficult to achieve. In this talk, we will go through the various dimensions which need to be considered when we are implementing PoLP and what are the challenges in achieving it. While the obvious consideration for least privilege is the set of permissions, we show why factors such as grant timing and duration,...
