Google Security Whitepaper


Published March 2020


Traditionally, organizations have looked to the public cloud for cost savings, or to augment private data center capacity. However, organizations are now primarily looking to the public cloud for security, realizing that providers can invest more in people and processes to deliver secure infrastructure.

As a cloud pioneer, Google fully understands the security implications of the cloud model. Their cloud services are designed to deliver better security than many traditional on-premises solutions. They make security a priority to protect our own operations, but because Google runs on the same infrastructure that they make available to their customers, your organization can directly benefit from these protections. That’s why they focus on security, and protection of data is among their primary design criteria. Security drives their organizational structure, training priorities and hiring processes. It shapes their data centers and the technology they house. It’s central to their everyday operations and disaster planning, including how they address threats. It’s prioritized in the way they handle customer data. And it’s the cornerstone of their account controls, their compliance audits and the certifications they offer their customers.

This paper outlines Google’s approach to security and compliance for Google Cloud, their suite of public cloud products and services. This whitepaper focuses on security including details on organizational and technical controls regarding how Google protects your data.
