The growth of the cloud has thrust the issue of security and trust into the spotlight. That’s because cloud services operate very differently from traditional on-premisese technology.

In the past, organizations felt that they had complete control over how infrastructure was run and who operated it. Organizations moving to the cloud will rely on cloud suppliers to manage the infrastructure, operations, and delivery of services.

We would like to provide an introduction to Google’s technology in the context of security and compliance.

Who owns the data I put into Google Apps? 

-> To put it simply, Google does not own your data. We don’t take a position on whether data belongs to individual users or the institution that signed up for Google Apps, but we know it doesn’t belong to us. The data you put into our systems is yours, and we believe it should stay that way. That means three key things:

1. We won’t share your data with others except as noted in our Privacy Policy.

2. We keep your data as long as you require us to keep it.

3. You should be able to take your data with you if you choose to use external services in conjunction with Google Apps or stop using our services altogether.


Where does Google store my data?

-> Your data is stored in Google’s network of geographically distributed data centers. Google’s computing clusters are designed with resiliency and redundancy in mind, eliminating any single point of failure and minimizing the impact of common equipment failures and environmental risks. Access to data centers is limited to select Google employees and personnel.


Is my data safe from your other customers when it is running on the same servers? 

->Yes. Data is virtually protected as if it were on its own server. Unauthorized parties cannot access your data. Your competitors cannot access your data, and vice versa. In fact, all user accounts are protected via this virtual lock and key that ensures that one user cannot see another user’s data. This is similar to how customer data is segmented in other shared infrastructures such as online banking applications.
