The purpose of this white paper is to discuss how to achieve regulatory and policy compliance with Google Apps. More than 30 millions users within businesses, government agencies, schools and other organizations world-wide have switched to Google Apps (adding over 3,000 businesses per day). Unfortunately, many of them cannot use all of the applications within Google Apps since it does not have any built-in document compliance or records management features to meet organizational standards and legal regulations. In fact, if you are governed by such regulations--you may not be able to use Google Apps for any of your records without being in violation. This document was written for end-users, records managers and compliance officers within organizations that use Google Apps. The problems discussed are universal and of growing concern as users of Google Apps continue to grow in number.
