I am the VIP

Norwegian Advanced Identity

Very Important privileges are being used in your environment every day. Both in Microsoft 365 and in Azure, it is important to understand when to use built-in or when you want to create custom roles and how to secure them! This is a matter of cost, stability, and security. With the right mindset, focus, and tools it should be possible for most companies to get started with this quite quickly. Though, the process might meet both technical and “cultural” challenges. Well, maybe just "cultural" challenges...
