Google adds new compliance and security certifications for Google Cloud

New certifications prove Google meets data protection and security requirements in Europe, the US, and Asia-Pacific region.

Google has announced new security and compliance certifications for its Google Cloud Platform     (GCP) to help address security needs of public sector agencies.

Specifically, the new certifications add Cloud DNS to Google Cloud’s list of Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) compliant products along with additional government and security compliance certifications across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Cost-effective Cloud DNS automatically scales to handle large volumes of domain name system (DNS) records. 

“With the addition of Cloud DNS, our U.S. public sector customers can leverage a broader set of Google Cloud technologies with the assurance they are meeting the highest level of civilian classification - without the limits of a traditional government cloud,” said Google.

Customers seeking to quickly and easily meet FedRAMP High controls can leverage Assured Workloads for Government, Google added. The Assured Workloads for Government service enables GCP customers to create controlled environments in US cloud regions by providing a guided process for building compliance-centric workloads. 

The tech giant is also assisting with data protection and security requirements in the APAC region. For instance, India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has successfully audited Google Cloud on its conformance with MeitY empanelment requirements (registration).

Similarly, in Japan, Google Cloud achieved registration for the Information System Security Management and Assessment Program (ISMAP), a Japanese government system for assessing cloud service providers’ security to participate in public sector projects.

Coming to Australia, Google Cloud was certified through the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP). This program assesses an organization's security relative to Australian government security requirements.

Google has also gained compliance with the Information Security Standard for Meeting Control Systems in Thailand. 

Additionally, Google has received attestations that it has complied with the German Federal Office of Information Security's Cloud Computing Compliance Criteria Catalogue for GCP and G Suite.

“Compliance is critical to building trust in the public sector, and we’re committed to working closely with customers, regulators, and industry organizations to strengthen their compliance frameworks as digital transformation continues to be the norm across governments and industries,” comments Mike Daniels, vice president of global public sector at Google Cloud.
