About the course

Today’s businesses are concerned about the shortage of skilled talent available to manage cloud technology, verify that security controls are in place, and set up access control to protect computing workloads and data. To address the high-stakes issue of cloud security and the demand for cloud security professionals, Google Cloud has created the Professional Cloud Security Engineer certification.
The Professional Cloud Security Engineer certification is all about designing and implementing secure infrastructure on the Google Cloud Platform. The certification focuses on five areas for secure design and operation in Google Cloud:

  • Configuring access within a cloud solution environment
  • Configuring network security
  • Ensuring data protection
  • Managing operations within a cloud solution environment
  • Ensuring compliance

This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge you need to not only pass the Professional Cloud Security Engineer certification exam but also gain the hands-on experience you need to become a qualified Google Cloud security specialist in the real world.
