  • Apply best practices of identity and permissions management as outlined in the Security Pillar of the AWS Well-Architected Framework and the Management and Governance Lens
  • Build and enforce least privilege policies at scale
  • Recognize where IAM can integrate with observability strategies
  • Identify IAM use cases in cloud financial management, service management, and security operations
