The Information System Security Management and Assessment
Program (ISMAP) is a Japanese government system for
assessing the security of cloud service providers to
participate in public sector projects. It is operated
jointly by The National Center of Incident Readiness and
Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC), The National Strategy
office of Information and Communications Technology, The
Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) as
well as The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
(METI). The Information-technology Promotion Agency
(IPA), an independent administrative agency, provides
practical technical support for the system.
Google Cloud was successfully assessed for ISMAP compliance
and subsequently registered as an ISMAP compliant Cloud
Service Provider. Our registration can be seen at the
Information Technology Promotion Agency (IPA) website.
