Google explains security policies

Facing massive public backlash over the company’s use of Street View cameras, Google published an explanation of its security policies last week.

Eran Feigenbaum, director of security for Google Enterprise, said in a blog post the publication would be used as a way to make the company more transparent.

“Feeling comfortable storing data in the cloud involves trusting a cloud services provider and the practices and policies they have in place,” Feigenbaum said in a blog post. “In today’s ultra-connected, web-capable world, understanding how data will be protected is ultimately more meaningful than knowing it is physically located in one data centre or another.”

Google’s paper, titled Security Whitepaper: Google Apps Messaging and Collaboration Products, is designed to relieve fears over the company’s security measures for its online services, like Gmail and its library of web apps.
