To address this rising skills shortage and enable secure cloud operations well into the future, we’re excited to collaborate with Google Cloud to launch the Security in Google Cloud Platform Specialization, a four-part course series that will equip security-focused technical professionals with the latest knowledge of security controls and techniques on the Google Cloud Platform. This Specialization is designed for professionals with a base understanding of Google Cloud fundamentals and a background in cybersecurity, including cloud information security analysts, architects, and engineers as well as information security and cybersecurity specialists.
“As businesses increasingly push their technology stack to the cloud to promote scalability and reduce costs, they must also prioritize information security as a means to protect their critical assets. We are excited to launch a new Google Certification called Professional Cloud Security Engineer. Additionally, we are partnering with Coursera for a new Specialization to equip professionals across the globe with security skills needed to take advantage of the benefits of Google Cloud Platform and protect their business”, Rochana Golani, Director – Google Cloud Learning and Enablement said.
“At Coursera, we are committed to providing high-quality content that equips companies and individuals with the most in-demand skills of today and tomorrow. As more companies move to the cloud, having cybersecurity talent to protect cloud storage is critical — especially in India, where up to 200,000 security alerts are unattended due to lack of required skill sets. Today, we are proud to strengthen our partnership with Google Cloud to offer the Security in Google Cloud Platform Specialization, which addresses this talent shortage for cloud security skills and in turn enables companies to scale securely”, Leah Belsky, VP- Enterprise, Coursera added.
Through recorded lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, this Specialization enables learners to:
Validate their ability to design and implement a secure infrastructure on GCP.
Explore and deploy the components of a secure Google Cloud Platform (GCP) solution, including Cloud Identity, the GCP Resource Manager, Cloud IAM, and more.
Learn mitigations for attacks at many points in a GCP-based infrastructure, including Distributed Denial-of-Service attacks, phishing attacks, and threats involving content classification and use.
This Specialization is an important resource for those working toward Google Cloud’s Professional Cloud Security Engineer Certification launching today, which is an industry recognized validation of an individual’s ability to design and implement a secure infrastructure on GCP. The Security in Google Cloud Platform Specialization is yet another major milestone for Coursera and Google Cloud in bringing high-demand industry content to learners around the world. With a total of nine Google Cloud Specializations on the Coursera platform today, we’re thrilled to provide learners with end-to-end training in critical technologies, taught directly by Google Cloud experts.
