8 Top Announcements From The Google Cloud Security Summit
‘Every day, every week, there’s something coming up, and it’s to a point where, in fact, many companies — through ransomware or otherwise — are actually almost abdicating their responsibility,’ says Sunil Potti, Google Cloud’s general manager and vice president of cloud security. ‘There’s a meme going around where a CISO is hesitant to spend $1 million on security tools, but writes a check for $10 million for ransomware very quickly.’
Chronicle Integration With Looker And BigQuery
Chronicle, Google Cloud’s cloud-native security analytics platform, is now integrated with its Looker and BigQuery analytics platforms to strengthen its reporting, compliance, visual security workflows, data exploration and security-driven data science capabilities.
Security teams now can access new embedded, Looker-driven dashboards in five content categories: Chronicle security overview, a set of overview visualizations that surface high-level insights such as statistics and trends on ingested events, number of alerts and a global threat map; data ingestion and health, an overview of all security telemetry ingested into Chronicle, including data types and volume; indicator of compromise (IOC) matches, a granular view into IOC matches detected in Chronicle, with views into IOC matches across IPs, domains and assets; rule detections, detailed insight into the top 10 triggered detection rules, the top users, IPs and assets associated with rules; and user sign-in data, insights into sign-in data across an organization, including sign-in statuses over time and top sign-ins by application and user. Customers also can create their own dashboards from scratch.
Chronicle’s integration with BigQuery, Google Cloud’s serverless and multi-cloud data warehouse, is designed to make it easier for analysts to leverage complex, massive security data sets to find problems faster. Chronicle customers can export petabytes of security telemetry into BigQuery.
Each Chronicle tenant now includes a private, managed BigQuery data lake featuring data export at regular intervals and 180 days of data retention included at no extra cost. In addition to Looker, customers can use any BigQuery-compatible tool — including Google Data Studio, Grafana, Google Sheets and Tableau — to create security visualizations with Chronicle data, according to the cloud provider.
