As a Denver, Colorado transplant (yes, I’m not a Native), I have the luxury of accessing the Rockies within minutes. One of my favorite mountain activities is hiking to the top of a mountain for the “long look”. I can see for miles – sky, earth, horizons. It gives me a moment of clarity; a glimpse into the future of what’s to come. As someone who works in the technology industry, I know that the future of technology and innovation is not always a clear vision as the mountain ranges in front of me. I know that oftentimes, technology is evolving every three years, sometimes faster!
Google is known for their constant stream of innovation and seamless updates. I’m excited for the G Suite horizons for Q4. Google just announced new discovery features in Google’s Drive for Work product that will enhance data retention and encourage large scale adoption. Drive for Work now features deeper integration with Google Vault for data management and eDiscovery service that allows for better retention and deletion of an organization’s data.
Google also recently announced their compliance with ISO 27018, which governs how organizations handle the privacy of personal data stored in their cloud. In particular, the certification establishes commonly accepted control objectives, controls and guidelines for implementing measures to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in accordance with the privacy principles in ISO/IEC 29100 for the public cloud computing environment.
I’m glad that Google proactively strives to keep my data private and secure. I love that Google is at the forefront of technology innovation and seeks to put me, the end user, at the forefront of design to ensure it is as seamless as possible when it comes to the end user experience. This way, I have plenty of time to enjoy nature knowing that I have access to the latest Google technology with the start of my computer.
