What is Cloud IAM Permissions in cyber security?

Permissions that control access to cloud resources.

Cloud IAM (Identity and Access Management) permissions are settings that control access to cloud resources. They determine who can access specific cloud services and what actions they can perform. Properly configuring IAM permissions is crucial for maintaining security and compliance in cloud environments. By assigning roles and permissions based on the principle of least privilege, organizations can minimize the risk of unauthorized access and ensure that users only have the access necessary to perform their job functions.
