In their on-going measures to strengthen online security Google has updated their Data Processing Amendment too G Suite as of October 30th, 2019

The update makes several sections easier to interpret. It also adds measures for if Brexit comes to fruition & the UK leaves the EU. Several features are now covered in the amendment as well which includes Data regions for G Suite.

Below is the email sent out to G Suite administrators:


Hello Administrator,

We are writing to let you know that we’ve updated the Data Processing Amendment to G Suite and/or Complementary Product Agreement (DPA).

What do I need to know?

The DPA has been updated to:

  • improve Google’s audit and security commitments, and bring the description of Google’s security measures up to date;

  • improve Google’s commitments with respect to impact assessments, prior consultations and data subjects’ rights; and

  • reflect new features, such as Data Regions for G Suite.

We have also simplified various sections of the DPA, and added terms to account for the possibility of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.

What do I need to do?

To ensure that you benefit from the updated DPA, we recommend that you review and accept it in the Google Admin console by following the detailed instructions located on the Compliance Amendments for G Suite and Cloud Identity page or in the Accepting the G Suite DPA video.

If you have further questions, please contact Google’s Cloud Data Protection Team via the Admin console or your regular customer support channel.

Thank you for being a valued Google Cloud customer.
