Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for Sensitive and Restricted Data

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is the University of Wisconsin's preferred provider for Restricted & Sensitive data among our public cloud (IaaS) providers, in terms of operational support, guidelines and monitoring provided by UW.   

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is permitted for Restricted & Sensitive data, with a risk assessment of the individual use case by Cybersecurity, and the implementation of the controls and processes identified in the risk assessment (see below for detail).    Please see Cloud Platform Eligibility for Sensitive and Restricted Data for important information regarding the campus approach to security in the public cloud.

(See for eligibility & access to the preferred provider article)

The account owner still maintains the responsibility to achieve & maintain the appropriate security controls per campus policy.   The cloud team can advise and consult on best practices.
