‘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.’

Zero Trust Assessment and Planning

Google Cloud’s Zero Trust Assessment and Planning offering is designed to help government customers reach security goals through zero-trust architecture planning for core applications and data. It’s delivered in phases through Google Cloud’s professional services organization, which will advise government organizations on the culture change, policies and technology needed to achieve a zero-trust framework. The new personalized service helps government agencies leverage Google Cloud tools to support existing   assets and infrastructure in cloud-based, on-premises or hybrid environments.

“Zero trust is something that everyone wants to get to, but no one knows where to begin and how to do this in a logical way,” Daniels said. “The ‘how step’ is incredibly important, and it’s different for each one of our government organizations based on the IT landscape they have, what are the most pressing threats. This is a set of offerings…that consists of assessments, workshops and strategy development that really help our government customers understand the ‘how step’: How do we start achieving this and make material progress along this path, with a blueprint and a roadmap that gets us to where we need to go at the end, keeping in mind budgets, legacy tech infrastructure that we have to deal with and making the most of that along the way.”
