Is Google Cloud HIPAA Compliant?

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is a suite of cloud services that includes virtual machines (VMs) management, data object storage, cloud databases, machine learning and analysis tools and more.

Certain GCP services in the Google ecosystem can be used in a HIPAA compliant manner. Google is willing to sign a Business Associates Agreement (BAA) for a select list of cloud services. This BAA designates specific physical safeguards handled by Google. It is your organization’s responsibility to implement all necessary technical and administrative safeguards.
