For many of those building in the cloud, speed and security of deployments are amongst their top priorities. At times these goals can seem at odds with each other, especially if security guidance is distributed, written more as reference than opinion, and lacking in tooling for actual implementation in your environment. But they don’t have to be. In fact, these are some challenges the security foundations blueprint was created to address. We recently started diving into the blueprint here on the blog to introduce what it is and who it is for, outline some best practices it recommends for creating and maintaining a security-centric infrastructure, and demonstrate how to get started with the automation repo that turns these best practices into deployable Terraform modules.
- It helps educate brand new users on Google Cloud security capabilities and best practices.
- It collects foundational security decisions together into a single resource, and provides a Google opinionated reference template.
- It provides an automated deployable example that speeds up their secured deployments and secured operations.
- It enables partners to build subject matter-specific solutions on top of a secured foundation.
