image image image

Google Cloud Security Command Center: makes it easier for you to prevent, detect, and respond to threats. Identify security misconfigurations in virtual machines, networks, applications, and storage buckets from a centralized dashboard. Take action on them before they can potentially result in business damage or loss. Built-in capabilities can quickly surface suspicious activity in your Stackdriver security logs or indicate compromised virtual machines. Respond to threats by following actionable recommendations or exporting logs to your SIEM for further investigation.

Quick Start

In order to use this library, you first need to go through the following steps:

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.

  2. Enable billing for your project.

  3. Enable the Google Cloud Security Command Center.

  4. Setup Authentication.


Install this library in a virtual environment using venv. venv is a tool that creates isolated Python environments. These isolated environments can have separate versions of Python packages, which allows you to isolate one project’s dependencies from the dependencies of other projects.

With venv, it’s possible to install this library without needing system install permissions, and without clashing with the installed system dependencies.
