Least Privileged Access Control

« Back to Glossary Index

Least Privileged Access Control refers to the practice of limiting users’ access to only what is necessary for them to perform their job functions. This includes defining what resources they are able to access and what actions they are able to perform within a software system. By implementing this principle, organizations can minimize the risk of security breaches caused by unauthorized access or accidental misuse of sensitive data. IAM plays a crucial role in enforcing Least Privileged Access Control by providing authentication, authorization, and access control mechanisms.
