IAM on Google Cloud Platform

By Vijeta Pai | February 16, 2021

Vijeta Pai, a Google Cloud expert and technology leader demystifies cloud using illustrations, comics and easy-to-understand explanations. Today, we're bringing you her post about Identity Access Management (IAM).

What is IAM? 

Simply put, it's a framework of policies and processes defined by the Cloud Provider to make sure users have appropriate permissions to access resources, applications and data on the Cloud. This helps not only secure the data and prevent unwanted threats, but also makes sure all the users have the right amount of access to get their work done.

There are three main parts to Identity Access Management (IAM) in Google Cloud Platform (GCP). They are Members, Roles and Policies. You can read more about them on Pai's website, Cloud Demystified.

Visual learner? Check out the comic.
