Compliance for healthcare and life sciences

Healthcare and life sciences

Healthcare and life sciences organizations analyze huge amounts of sensitive data across disparate platforms and modalities. Google Cloud protects your sensitive data and helps you maintain compliance with numerous requirements across various domains, geographies, and workloads. Support for regulations like HIPAA serves your data interoperability and management needs while meeting industry-specific security, privacy, and compliance requirements. Google Cloud is also HITRUST-CSF-certified and meets ISO/IEC 27000-series standards, among many others.
