Modern IT environments demand sophisticated access management strategies to balance security with operational efficiency. This paper explores the integration of the Least Privilege Principle and Just-in-Time (JIT) access to address the challenges of managing complex, dynamic systems. By granting only essential permissions for specific tasks and then promptly revoking them, this approach minimizes attack surfaces and reduces the risk of privilege creep. We present a theoretical framework for unifying these principles, along with strategies for dynamic access control, automated decision-making, and adaptive policies. This integrated model offers the potential to enhance security, streamline access, and improve operational efficiency. Though implementation challenges exist, proactive investment in tools, training, and process refinement can smooth the transition.
