Introduction to Access Approval

Google Cloud aims to ensure that limits on administrative access are an integral part of how the products are designed to work. Access Approval lets you decide if and when Google personnel can access your customer content stored on Google Cloud. When Google personnel require access to customer data to fulfill a contractual obligation, they must submit a detailed approval request with a valid business justification.
