Preparing for Google Cloud Certification: Cloud Security Engineer

Up- grade your career as a security engineer. This Google Cloud Platform Security Engineer training, provided by Alvernia University, will prepare you for the industry-recognized Google Cloud Professional Cloud Security Engineer certification.

Create, update, delete, and undelete custom IAM roles – as you would do to provide access components within Google Cloud. As you learn to be a security engineer, Google, you will create and configure a private cluster for Kubernetes in Google Cloud. The virtual machines on which the Kubernetes nodes run are not externally accessible. You will use network policies to apply restrictions to limit intra-cluster communication.

Finally, you will assign API permissions to a cluster application and do some basic troubleshooting, as would a Google certified security engineer.

Preparing for Google Cloud Certification: Cloud Security Engineer Professional Certificate Courses

Google Cloud Platform Fundamentals: Core Infrastructure

This course introduces you to important concepts and terminology for working with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Compare many of the computing and storage services available in Google Cloud Platform, including Google App Engine, Google Compute Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Cloud Storage, Google Cloud SQL and BigQuery.
  • Learn about important resource and policy management tools, such as the Google Cloud Resource Manager hierarchy and Google Cloud Identity and Access Management.
  • Gain foundational skills for working with GCP through hands-on labs.

Networking in Google Cloud: Defining and Implementing Networks

Learn about the variety of networking options on Google Cloud. This course uses lectures, demonstrations and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy Google Cloud networking technologies, including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; and Cloud NAT. You will also learn about common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Configure Google VPC networks, subnets and routers and control administrative access to VPC objects.
  • Control network access to endpoints in VPCs.
  • Choose among Google Cloud load balancer and proxy options and configure them.
  • Use Cloud CDN to reduce latency and save money.

Networking in Google Cloud: Hybrid Connectivity and Network Management

Learn about the variety of networking options on Google Cloud. This course uses lectures, demonstrations and hands-on labs to help you explore and deploy Google Cloud networking technologies, including Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) networks, subnets, firewalls; interconnection among networks; load balancing; Cloud DNS; Cloud CDN; and Cloud NAT. You will also learn about common network design patterns and automated deployment using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Interconnect networks among Google Cloud projects, VPC networks and on-premises or other-cloud networks and optimize network spend using Network Tiers.
  • Configure Cloud NAT or Private Google Access to provide instances without public IP addresses access to other services.
  • Design networks to meet common customer requirements and deploy networks declaratively using Cloud Deployment Manager or Terraform.
  • Configure monitoring and logging to troubleshoot networks problems.

Managing Security in Google Cloud Platform

This is self-paced training for study of security controls and techniques on Google Cloud. Through recorded lectures, demonstrations and hands-on labs, you will explore and deploy the components of a secure Google Cloud solution, including Cloud Identity, Resource Manager, Cloud IAM, Google Virtual Private Cloud firewalls, Google Cloud Load balancing, Cloud Peering, Cloud Interconnect, and VPC Service Controls.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the Google approach to security.
  • Manage administrative identities using Cloud Identity.
  • Implement IP traffic controls using VPC firewalls and Google Cloud Armor.

Security Best Practices in Google Cloud

This is self-paced training for study of security controls and techniques on Google Cloud. Through recorded lectures, demonstrations and hands-on labs, you will explore and deploy the components of a secure Google Cloud solution, including Cloud Storage access control technologies, Security Keys, Customer-Supplied Encryption Keys, API access controls, scoping, shielded VMs, encryption, and signed URLs. It also covers securing Kubernetes environments.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply techniques and best practices to secure Compute Engine.
  • Apply techniques and best practices to secure cloud data.
  • Apply techniques and best practices to secure applications.
  • Apply techniques and best practices to secure Kubernetes.

Mitigating Security Vulnerabilities on Google Cloud Platform

In this self-paced training course, you will learn mitigations for attacks at many points in a Google Cloud-based infrastructure, including Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks, phishing attacks and threats involving content classification and use. You will also learn about the Security Command Center, cloud logging and audit logging, and using Forseti to view overall compliance with your organization’s security policies.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Protect against Distributed Denial of Service Attacks (DDoS).
  • Apply techniques and best practices to protect against content-related vulnerabilities.
  • Identify the Google Cloud services and features that support the collection, processing, aggregation and display of real-time quantitative data.

Hands-On Labs in Google Cloud for Security Engineers

Security is an uncompromising feature of Google Cloud services and Google Cloud has developed specific tools for ensuring safety and identity across your projects. In this course you will get added hands-on practice understanding and securing resources with multiple Google Cloud services including Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). This course is unlike other courses. It consists of one module of background videos, followed by a series of hands-on practice exercises on Google Cloud via Qwiklabs. The practice modules include no videos, lectures or quizzes – just more practice on real Google Cloud.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create custom IAM roles.
  • Create and configure VPC network peering.
  • Secure a private Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud.
