How Google Cloud enables your compliance

Security & privacy

Google Cloud is committed to protecting our customers’ privacy and security needs. Our data processing terms for Google Workspace and GCP articulate how we help you meet your specific compliance requirements.


We automatically encrypt your data both in transit outside of physical boundaries not controlled by Google and at rest by default and provide numerous ways for you to control your own encryption keys and data access.

Data storage

Google Cloud services are available in multiple locations worldwide. For select services and for data at rest, choose which facilities best meet your specific latency, availability, and durability requirements.

Incident notification

Google’s industry-leading data security practices specify a rigorous process for dealing with any incident that might impact your data’s confidentiality, integrity, or availability.


Depending on the service, your organization can securely download a copy of its data from Google Workspace or Google Cloud.


Data confidentiality is a priority at Google Cloud. Our products undergo regular third-party audits to ensure we maintain industry-leading certifications and protections.
