CIS and GCP

CIS Google Cloud Platform Foundations Benchmark

Anyone using GCP, regardless of whether CIS Hardened Images are used, should secure their environment with the CIS Google Cloud Platform Foundations Benchmark. The purpose of this CIS Benchmark is to provide prescriptive guidance about security configuration on GCP.

Google Shielded VMs

CIS Hardened Images on GCP are now built on Google Cloud’s Shielded VM base images. Shielded VMs provide an even more secure foundation for all of GCP by limiting mistakes and ensuring your organization is only using supported images. There is no additional cost for using a Shielded VM on Google Cloud and bring your own (BYO) image licensing is supported.
