- Configuring network security
- Ensuring data protection
- Managing operations within a cloud solution environment
- Ensuring compliance
- People who want to become Google Cloud Platform security engineers
- People preparing for the Google Professional Cloud Security Engineer exam
- Basic understanding of cloud concepts such as virtual machines, containers, and networking
