Google Cloud & GDPR: Partnering for Data Protection

Google Cloud, Data Privacy, and GDPR – a longstanding, debated topic. Despite Google's solutions often being superior, some educational institutions and companies remain cautious due to concerns about data protection and GDPR. They fear the 'data octopus' and non-compliance with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

However, Google Cloud has been assisting businesses and educational institutions across Europe for years in complying with stringent data protection regulations. Our customers in the fields of cloud infrastructure, digital workplaces, and digital education have benefited from Google's leading cloud solutions and have a long-standing partnership with us.

We are delighted to announce that the Belgian Data Protection Authority, based on a positive opinion from the European Data Protection Board (EDPB), has approved the EU Cloud Code of ConductExternal Link (CoC). The CoC is the result of years of constructive collaboration between the cloud computing community, the European Commission, and European data protection authorities. It is now recognized as the first European code incorporated into the GDPR.

Both Google Cloud Platform and Google Workspace already comply with the CoC's provisions. This is excellent news because the CoC offers educational institutions and companies additional transparency and increased trust in the cloud.

In addition to the CoC, Google Cloud has already been certified according to internationally recognised data protection standards such as ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27017, ISO/IEC 27018, and ISO/IEC 27701. These certifications independently confirm our commitment to world-class security and data protection.
