Google Cloud Trust Center
How we focus on security, compliance, and privacy to earn the position of your most trusted cloud.
Why teams and organizations like yours trust Google Cloud
Your decision to move applications or data to the cloud comes down to your ability to:
- Trust that your customer data will be stored, processed, and managed responsibly
- Maintain control of data on infrastructure you don’t own or manage
Ultimately, customer data is your data, not Google’s.
We work to earn your trust by:
- Providing a secure platform that delivers transparency and enables sovereignty
- Defending your data against threats and fraudulent activity using the same infrastructure and security services we use for our own operations
- Undergoing rigorous, independent verification of our security, privacy, and compliance controls to help you meet your regulatory objectives
We protect your information, identities, applications, and devices using the same secure-by-design infrastructure, built-in protection, and global network that Google uses.
We encrypt data in transit between our facilities and at rest, ensuring that it can only be accessed by authorized roles and services with audited access to the encryption keys.
