A Google for Education Audit provides an in-depth review of your Google domain by industry experts against EDU best practices. All services and settings are analyzed; any not set up to best practices are documented and recommendations are given on how to implement them for your school.
The focus of the Audit will be split into the following key areas:
Operations & Management
Review of domain set up, OU structure, account provisioning, admin roles, and user account management.
Services & Configuration
Analysis of all core and additional services, Chrome user and device settings. Third party tool setting recommendations also are provided.
Security & Compliance
Snapshot and analysis of current security and compliance settings for Gmail and Drive filtering and sharing.
Reporting and insights on Chromebooks as well as in-depth Classroom metrics
What will you learn from your Audit?
The output of the Audit will be a comprehensive documented report. Each finding will be analyzed and will answer the following: what it’s current set to, what the setting should be changed to, why it should be changed, and how to change it.
