Google Cloud Security Basics: The Security Command Center

Security and risk management in Google Cloud

Security Command Center (SCC) is an all-in-one solution for your security and risk management in the Google Cloud. SCC helps you discover your assets in real time, protect your infrastructure from threats, and provides detailed visibility into your current Google Cloud security status. Its benefits at a glance:

  • Centralised visibility and control
  • Resolution of configuration errors and compliance violations
  • Threat detection

Asset detection & inventory

With the Security Command Center, you can discover and view your assets in real time. This includes App Engine, BigQuery, Cloud SQL, Cloud Storage, Compute Engine, Cloud Identity and Access Management, Google Kubernetes Engine and many more. You also have visibility into previous discovery scans at any time to identify new, changed or deleted assets very easily.

Protection against threats

With SCC, you can determine the security status of your Google Cloud assets. This can reveal common web application security vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting or outdated libraries in your web applications running in App Engine, GKE and Compute Engine. And the beauty of it is that to fix configuration errors, you can click directly on the affected resource and follow the provided resolution steps. It doesn't get much easier than that.

Detection of new threats

The Security Command Center puts you in a great position for the future, too. With SCC, detect new threats at scale using logs running in Google Cloud. Identify some of the most common container attacks, including suspicious binaries and libraries, and reverse shell.
