Create a new Assured Workloads folder

This page describes how to create a new Assured Workloads folder for each compliance program.

For more information about Assured Workloads, see the Assured Workloads overview.

Select a compliance program

Select your desired compliance program to learn how to create an Assured Workloads folder:

  • Before you begin

    If you haven't already, you must complete the steps below to create an Assured Workloads folder for the CJIS compliance program:

    1. Ensure that you understand Assured Workloads concepts.
    2. Set up Cloud Identity and verify your domain.
    3. After Cloud Identity has been configured, create an organization.
    4. Enable Access Transparency for the organization.

    Required IAM roles

    To create an Assured Workloads folder, you must be granted the Assured Workloads Administrator (roles/assuredworkloads.admin) role, which contains the minimum IAM permissions to create and manage Assured Workloads folders.

    Create an Assured Workloads folder for CJIS

      • In Folder name, enter a unique name for the folder, such as aw-my-folder-name. The folder name must be a minimum of 4 characters in length and a maximum of 30, and can only contain letters, numbers, spaces, and hyphens.
      Click Next.
    10. (Optional) In the step to Configure key management, you can create a new project and a key ring for your Customer Managed Encryption Keys (CMEK). This step does not create the keys themselves; Assured Workloads does not automatically create any cryptographic keys for you. See Supporting compliance with key management for more information.
      • In the Key ring name field, enter the name of the new key ring.
      • In the Project name field, enter the name of the new CMEK project to create (Optional). If no project name is specified, the project name will be automatically set to cmek-FOLDER_NAME. For example, if your Assured Workloads folder is aw-my-folder-name, the CMEK project will automatically be called cmek-aw-my-folder-name. Do not include sensitive data or personally identifiable information (PII) in the project ID.
      • In the Project ID field, enter the ID of the project to create for your encryption keys (Optional). Do not include sensitive data or personally identifiable information (PII) in the project ID.
      • Select the billing account that's associated with your Google Cloud organization.
      Click Next.
    11. In the step to Review and create folder, review the details about your new Assured Workloads folder and ensure that they are correct. Then, click Create.

    After completing the steps above, Assured Workloads creates the following resources:

    • An Assured Workloads folder, which enforces security controls on supported Google Cloud products to adhere with the US Regions and Support compliance program. These security controls include setting an organization policy that restricts resource usage to only those supported products.
    • If you chose to create one, a CMEK project that contains the configured CMEK key ring. If you use CMEK, see Create and obtain a CMEK key to learn more.

    Use your new Assured Workloads folder

    To start using your Assured Workloads folder, it's important that any resources that you want to be compliant with US Regions and Support be placed in the new folder. You can create projects inside of it along with resources for supported products, or migrate existing projects:

    • Create a new project in the newly-created Assured Workloads folder, and then create a Compute Engine VM inside the project. The VM instance will be configured to meet the compliance requirements for US Regions and Support.
    • Analyze an existing project that you want to make compliant with US Regions and Support, and make any of the required changes. Then, move the project to the newly-created Assured Workloads folder.
