🌟 IAM Pulse Check #15 – Hear, Sense And Feel
By Ivan Dwyer • Issue #15 • View online
Hey folks,
Thanks to those who contributed content for our end of the year holiday drive – we donated $500 across 5 charities from a fresh batch of helpful member articles. Let’s top that with our next campaign – the 2022 Cloud IAM Survey!
We’re planning our content and programs for the next year, so we’d love to hear from you to better focus our efforts on what would be most beneficial. Whether you’re the resident IAM expert or on a learning path, your perspective is incredibly valuable to the community.
The following survey covers topics like the methods for managing and accessing cloud environments, how IAM permissions are managed and reviewed, the specs & docs of the major cloud providers, the things that make working with IAM difficult, and how important cloud permissions are to your organization.
I expect the survey to take about 15 minutes as a mix of multiple choice and ranked questions. To get a taste, some of the questions include:
  • Do you classify your resources in a manner that you can apply different permissions levels to?
  • How proficient are you in reading and understanding the contents of an IAM policy document for each provider?
  • How would you rate your organization’s ability to find misconfigurations and/or errors in IAM policies that lead to either access being denied or data being exposed?
  • When reviewing IAM policies in a cross-functional setting, what are some of the things that can lead to disagreement?
  • If you encounter access denied issues during development, where do you go to help resolve?
We’ll keep this survey open through the end of the month, and for every submission, we’ll donate $5 to Hack the Hood - an award-winning non-profit whose mission is to empower low-income youth of color with the knowledge, skills, and relationships they need to pursue careers in tech. 
We’re investing a lot in unique content & programs for the community this year, so you can expect a lot more from us as IAM helpers. Let’s tackle it together!
