Adapting to Cyber Threats
With the increasing threat landscape, companies need to be prepared to deal with evolving and complex cyber-attacks. Google is no exception and is targeted by cybercriminals every day. In this context, the main goal of Google Cloud Security is to detect everything and trust nothing. This blog post will discuss Google’s approach to security, the challenges faced by security operations, and how Google is evolving to meet these challenges.
Enhancing Cybersecurity with Google Cloud’s Multi-Cloud Solutions
The Power of Google Cloud’s Multi-Cloud Solutions
The first step towards securing a company’s data is to choose a trusted public cloud offering. Google Cloud is considered one of the most reliable cloud providers in the market. However, in a multi-cloud environment, where customers operate on different cloud platforms, Google Cloud Security offers solutions that work not only on their own cloud but also on Azure, AWS, and even on-prem environments. These solutions are designed to bring Google’s expertise and knowledge from security practices to customers.
A Customized Approach to Security
The approach towards security at Google is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It is a journey, and Google believes in a fundamentally different approach to solutions and the future vision for them. The concept of invisible security involves changing security on different layers and considering different risk levels. Google is evolving from a shared responsibility approach to a shared fate approach, working with customers.
Evolving Security Operations for the Future
As technology changes, so do the profiles of people working in security operations. Therefore, Google needs different skill sets to meet these demands. Google’s security operations centres are moving from manual work to automated to a more autonomic way of working. The goal is to achieve an autonomic security operations environment, where security operations can detect and respond to threats quickly and efficiently.
Driving Change with Service Blueprints Methodology
Google offers service blueprints methodology, a new way of working within security operations teams, to drive change into a conservative environment such as a Security Operations Centre (SOC). The methodology involves a philosophical debate to evolve as security people move towards more business enabler thinking together with the DevOps teams.
Achieving Autonomic Security Operations with Continuous Detection and Response
Continuous detection and continuous response are crucial in achieving an autonomic security operations environment. Google is introducing the concept of orchestration as part of the response. The last piece that was missing was continuous feedback.
With the recent acquisition of Mandiant, Google will have next-level vulnerability management, together with VirusTotal, which closes the ecosystem.
In conclusion, Google’s approach towards security is constantly evolving to meet the challenges posed by the evolving threat landscape. The concept of invisible security involves changing security on different layers and considering different risk levels. Google is moving from a shared responsibility approach to a shared fate approach, working with customers towards achieving an autonomic security operations environment. With the recent acquisition of Mandiant, Google is poised to offer next-level vulnerability management, which closes the ecosystem. Google’s approach towards security operations is changing, and it is designed to offer customers a comprehensive solution that is effective, efficient, and reliable.
