When using any services provided by a Public Cloud provider, like Google Cloud Platform, you need to understand the shared responsibility model for cloud computing. In an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud service model, you are responsible for securing your applications, operating system, network configuration, identity, clients and data within GCP. Google is responsible for the security of the platform, such as physical security, host infrastructure and protection of foundational services.

In order to provide a secure environment for your applications and data, industry best practices recommend the use of a recognized security standard (GCP CIS, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, NIST 800-53, and SOC TSP) to measure against and to secure your environment. While there are services provided by the Google Cloud Platform (like Policy Intelligence, Security Command Center, Cloud Data Loss Prevention) that can help you in this endeavor, their configuration and continuous operation will require a substantial effort on your part.

We understand your dilemma:

  • Cloud Services are being created and destroyed every minute
  • Security is always changing; there are new threats every week
  • It’s hard to find experienced Cloud Security Practitioners
  • How do you keep your environment secure while staying abreast of the latest security solutions?
  • It feels like Cloud has invalidated your perimeter security model
  • Services are launched weekly; how do you stay on top of how to secure each one?
  • Cloud appears to require new skills from your security practitioners
  • How do you know if you have the right security solution in place?

Our GCP security experts can improve the security posture of your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environment, today!

We review your current configurations and platform controls, provide detailed recommendations, and present best practices to reduce risk and mitigate common threats to your environment.
