AWS IAM: Security edition [Part-1]

In the last blog, we talked about AWS IAM challenges usually encountered while setting it up. We also talked about AWS IAM best practices which help us understand why there is a need for multiple options & practices through which we can satisfy our needs. When we talk about AWS IAM, there is an important term called security which plays an important role while setting up AWS IAM. We covered lots of approaches which generally are not related to AWS IAM security. We bring to you this blog that covers many aspects of security related to AWS IAM.
