The GIAC Public Cloud Security (GPCS) certification verifies that practitioners are knowledgeable about the main three cloud platforms – AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform – and can safeguard data and infrastructure on each.

In the following categories, GPCS-certified practitioners have proven critical knowledge required by today’s businesses:

“The GPCS distinguishes itself from the security certifications offered by each provider because it remains vendor neutral,” said Brandon Evans, co-author of the affiliated SANS Institute SEC510 course.

“SEC510: Public Cloud Security: AWS, Azure, and GCP covers a large array of topics across each of the Big 3 Cloud providers. Certification is crucial to prove that an individual can navigate through the nuances of each platform to defend the data and infrastructure within,” said Brandon Evans, co-author of the affiliated SANS Institute SEC510 course. “The GPCS distinguishes itself from the security certifications offered by each provider because it remains vendor neutral. GPCS emphasizes the security strengths and weaknesses of each provider, highlighting that they are not secure by default and require professional reconfiguration. Any organization using one or more of these providers will find the knowledge and experience of GPCS holders to be indispensable to their security strategy.”

For cybersecurity analysts and engineers, cloud and DevOps engineers, security auditors and systems administrators, and operations staff, earning the GPCS certification is highly recommended. Anyone who is responsible for investigating, assessing, or deploying cloud security services will benefit from GPCS.

The SANS Institute course SEC510: Public Cloud Security: AWS, Azure, and GCP is meant to validate skills taught in the GPCS. The GPCS certification is now open for registration to the general public.
