Real Time Risk Mitigation in Google Cloud Platform

February 21, 2023

Due to the increasing adoption of Google Cloud Platform in business, many organizations are searching for real-time risk mitigation and monitoring capabilities related to this platform. In this article, we’ll review some of the available solutions to accomplish this objective.


Google Cloud Platform is a cloud computing platform that enables companies to develop and deploy large-scale software projects. Additionally, it offers businesses an online storage solution for data archiving. Whether creating a new app or expanding existing applications, Google Cloud Platform provides an affordable entry point.

GCP provides security teams with a suite of tools to monitor cloud environment security risks. These can be integrated alongside other security programs for an overall view of risks and their mitigation.

Splunk is one such platform. Integrated with Google Cloud Platform (GCP), it enables users to monitor app and network performance, identify criminal activities and perform root analysis of the cause. Furthermore, Splunk works in tandem with Google Workspace for Gmail and Google Vault services.

Cloud Logging

The Google Cloud Platform offers various services, from cloud storage to central log-in. Therefore, it is essential that your data remain secure and safe at all times. There are various methods available for doing so.

Google Cloud Security Service offers the simplest solution for this. It provides near-real-time threats detection capabilities, tracks actions taken on cloud assets and stores the outcomes in their Security Command Center.

Another option is using Google Cloud Pub/Sub API. This secure messaging platform enables you to transmit messages and receive alerts in real-time, with the greatest advantage being that it allows for separation between sender and receiver for high-quality communication.

Third-party log management solutions offer advanced analysis. Logs can be classified according to source, event and severity and exported in various formats – you could see a graph of how often an application has accessed an API or all information uploaded and deleted from a service.
