GCP Data Protection – Implementation


“Experts revealed that an unauthorized party compromised more than 200 million user records hosted somewhere within the U.S. in a Google Cloud database”

Once the GCP Data Protection assessment and strategy is finalised, we provide a complete walkthrough with guidance for data protection control implementation. We also provide resources with technical capabilities in implementing the data protection controls and technologies for your GCP Environment. Based on your needs and regulatory requirements, we will design and implement the data protection plan as per your strategic roadmap. Our implementation capabilities include, but are not restricted, to the Data Protection controls illustrated below:

Data Discovery

Benefits - GCP Data Protection Implementation

Our Implementation Approach :


GCP Discovery

Data-at-rest scans will be performed across your GCP environment to identify sensitive data and develop Data Flow Diagrams (DFD)

AES256/AES128 Encryption (DB)

Databases are protected through a FIPS 140-2 validated Hardware Security Module

Disk - Level Encryption

Static data residing on GCP storages such as disks with in clusters and back ups can be protected through standard AES-256


Authenticating Endpoints

Data sources and destinations are verified along with the validation of human or process pings. Google IAM is used for access control

Cloud DLP

Data-in-transit can be protected by implementing a CASB solution in the cloud and by protecting endpoint machines with Endpoint DLP. We evaluate and implement appropriate vendors for your environment.

NetworkTraffic Encryption

Encryption is done in the transport and network layer. Cloud Key Management can be configured to manage keys and certificates.


Field - Level Encryption

DZone Security column level encryption can be implemented to protect Dynamic web sensitive data while meeting compliance requirements

Application Layer Transport Security(ALTS)

GCP ALTS ensures all Remote Procedure Calls(RPCs) are protected. It uses state-of-the-art cryptographic primitives

Tokenization & Obfuscation

Our experts will implement Tokenization and Obfuscation to protect highly critical sensitive data stored in GCP. This ensures compliance with GDPR

Expected Outcome:

With the successful implementation of the GCP cloud Data Protection service provided by us, you would be able to deploy robust and secure applications on the cloud without any hassles or worry. It is based on the industry best practices and promises operational efficiency, reliability, performance excellence, security and cost optimization. During implementation we would be providing a walkthrough document, various technical manuals and maintenance guidelines. With the complete package of assessment, Strategy and Implementation – you will have a bird eye view of your infrastructure and technical landscape as well as complete documented steps of securitization and modernization. Our endgame is to make your cloud environment risk free and high yielding.
