    Course Description

    A Professional Cloud Security Engineer enables organizations to design and implement a secure infrastructure on Google Cloud Platform. Through an understanding of security best practices and industry security requirements, this individual designs, develops, and manages a secure infrastructure leveraging Google security technologies.

    The Cloud Security Professional should be proficient in all aspects of Cloud Security including managing identity and access management, defining organizational structure and policies, using Google technologies to provide data protection, configuring network security defenses, collecting and analyzing Google Cloud Platform logs, managing incident responses, and an understanding of regulatory concerns.

    Learning Objectives

    This course teaches participants the following skills:

    • Understanding the Google approach to security Managing administrative identities using Cloud Identity.
    • Implementing least privilege administrative access using Google Cloud Resource Manager, Cloud IAM.
    • Implementing IP traffic controls using VPC firewalls and Cloud Armor Implementing Identity Aware Proxy Analyzing changes to the configuration or metadata of resources with GCP audit logs Scanning for and redact sensitive data with the Data Loss Prevention API Scanning a GCP deployment with Forseti Remediating important types of vulnerabilities, especially in public access to data and VMs.
