Information security policies and processes
Our customers and regulators expect independent verification of security, privacy and compliance controls. Google undergoes several independent third party audits on a regular basis to provide this assurance. This means that an independent auditor has examined the controls present in our data centers, infrastructure and operations.

GSuite and Google infrastructure is certified for a growing number of compliance standards and controls, and undergoes several independent third party audits to test for data safety, privacy, and security

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Configuration and change management approach
In Google production environments, software updates are manually vetted to ensure the stability of the system. Changes are then tested and cautiously rolled out to systems. The details vary somewhat depending on the service being considered, but all development work is separated from the operation systems, testing occurs in a multi-staged fashion in both environments and in dedicated test settings. Google can share, under NDA, the SOC2 audit report (based on standards from the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board), which describes the change management process. Additionally, changes to code go through a process of code review involving additional engineer(s).
Vulnerability management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Vulnerability management approach
Google administrates a vulnerability management process that actively scans for security threats using a combination of commercially available and purpose-built tools, intensive automated/manual penetration efforts, quality assurance processes, software security reviews and external audits. The vulnerability management team is responsible for tracking and following up on vulnerabilities. Once a vulnerability requiring remediation has been identified, it is logged, prioritized according to severity, and assigned an owner. The vulnerability management team tracks such issues and follows up frequently until they can verify that the issues have been remediated. Google also maintains relationships and interfaces with members of the security research community.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Focused on information gathered from network traffic, employee actions on systems and outside knowledge of vulnerabilities. Traffic is inspected at many points for suspicious behaviour. Analysis is performed using open-source and commercial tools for traffic capture and parsing, supported by a correlation system built on top of Google technology. Analysis is supplemented by examining system logs for unusual behaviour, such as attempted access of customer data. Security engineers place standing alerts on public data repositories to look for security incidents that might affect company infrastructure. They actively review inbound security reports and monitor public mailing lists, blog posts, and wikis.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
If an incident occurs, the security team logs and prioritises it according to severity. Events directly impacting customers are assigned the highest priority. This process specifies courses of action, procedures for notification, escalation, mitigation, and documentation. Google’s incident management program is structured around NIST guidance on handling incidents. Key staff are trained in forensics and handling evidence in preparation for an event, including the use of third-party and proprietary tools. Testing of incident response plans is performed for key areas, such as systems that store sensitive customer information. Tests consider a variety of scenarios, including insider threats and software vulnerabilities.
