Google Cloud Penetration Testing is a process that can be done on Google Cloud applications. It consists of testing for vulnerabilities in your application to see if it would withstand an attack from outside sources or hackers trying to break into the system. Google Cloud pen testing is a process of testing the security of the GCP infrastructure, identifying vulnerabilities, and providing recommendations to improve the security posture of the platform.
The GCP Shared Responsibility Model determines which cloud architecture components Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is responsible for as the cloud security provider (CSP) and which are the GCP customer’s responsibility to secure. In its simplest terms, the Shared Responsibility Model dictates that the cloud provider must monitor and respond to security threats related to the cloud itself and its underlying infrastructure. The customer is responsible for securing their data and applications in the cloud.
