Google Cloud gains OSPAR attestation for 75 cloud products

09 Sep 2019

Google Cloud has received Singapore’s Outsourced Service Provider Auditor Report (OSPAR) attestation for 75 of its cloud products, including Cloud Deployment Manager, Kubernetes Engine, and Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

The OSPAR framework was established by the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS), which formulated IT security guidelines for outsourced service providers (OSPs) that seek to provide services to Singapore’s financial institutions.

The guidelines specify the minimum required IT security controls that OSPs must offer if they wish to do business with financial institutions.

Attained through a rigorous audit of security capabilities by an independent third party, the OSPAR attestation requires a rigorous audit of security capabilities through an independent third party.

Google says that its accreditation ‘demonstrates that Google Cloud has met the requirements of the Guidelines on Control Objectives and Procedures for Outsourced Service Providers (ABS Guidelines)’.

Furthermore, the company states:

“We are happy to provide additional assurance to our financial institution customers in Singapore that Google Cloud is committed to:

- Maintaining a high level of security that meets the rigorous ABS Guidelines. This relates to our capabilities and controls related to third-party vendor management, technical and organizational security, and information protection.

- Driving innovation and digital transformation in the financial services industry. This allows our financial services customers who process high impact workloads to take advantage of the generational leap into cloud computing technology with confidence that their data will remain secure.

- Providing greater value and choice for the APAC region. It provides a much-needed boost to competition in Singapore’s public cloud market, giving FIs a greater range of choices in technology mix and cloud providers than ever before.”
