Google Workspace for Education support package
2 August 2021 - As we previously reported, an agreement was reached with Google on July 8 on the measures aimed at the previously identified privacy risks at Google Workspace for Education.
This means that institutions can continue to use Google Workspace for Education (Plus), provided that they also take a number of actions themselves. SURF, SIVON and Kennisnet have created a support package for this, which you can now find here.
- Information on how your institution should accept the Workspace for Education Online agreement with Google. See all the information in the article 'Continue using Google Workspace for Education? Do these things first'. (in Dutch)
- Technical manual for Google Workspace for Education (in Dutch): enables your own system administrator to make the necessary technical changes to the Workspace for Education environment.
- Education-specific DPIA guide for Google Workspace for Education (in Dutch): helps you carry out a DPIA for your own educational institution based on the results negotiated by SURF and SIVON.
- Update on Google Workspace for Education DPIA, SURF and SIVON: information on the technical, legal, and organizational changes that will reduce the high privacy risks for users of Workspace for Education.
With the information above and the tools, determine for your own institution whether you can continue to safely use Google Workspace for Education (Plus) - before the start of the new academic year.
