“Regionalized data processing is central to Airbus’ compliance strategy. When data isn’t regionalized or is handled by other technology providers; it’s a risk for Europe, it’s a risk for the nation, and it’s a risk for Airbus. It’s a risk that we can’t afford. So, we have migrated approximately 270,000 users to regionalized data processing while maintaining the same functionality Workspace has always offered, with no reported impact to end-users, so we are able to be more productive and innovative. We control our most sensitive data with encryption keys owned by Airbus, which is only possible with Client-side encryption in Google Workspace.”
