Which of the below mentioned options is not a best practice to securely manage the AWS access credentials?

A.
Enable MFA for privileged users

B.
Create individual IAM users

C.
Keep rotating your secure access credentials at regular intervals

D.
Create strong access key and secret access key and attach to the root account

Explanation:
It is a recommended approach to avoid using the access and secret access keys of the root account. Thus, do not
download or delete it. Instead make the IAM user as powerful as the root account and use its credentials. The user cannot
generate their own access and secret access keys as they are always generated by AWS.
