Microsoft Security: 2023 State of Cloud Permissions Risks Report

The permissions gap is a contributing factor to the rise of both accidental and malicious insider threats, which can allow attackers to exploit an identity with misconfigured permissions and access critical cloud infrastructure. This gap can be reduced through implementing the principle of least privilege and working towards a Zero Trust security model, thus protecting cloud environments. However, this is nearly impossible to do manually and at cloud scale. Without properly implementing the principle of least privilege across all identities and all clouds, organizations are leaving their critical cloud infrastructure open to permission misuse and potential breaches. In this report, we share detailed findings about the most common multicloud permission risks and share recommendations for how to ensure least privileged access and achieve Zero Trust security across your entire digital estate.
