services / Google Cloud / Cloud Storage buckets

Buckets are the basic unit of data storage within Cloud Storage. All data must be contained in a bucket.

Buckets may be used to store data of various sensitivities, from publicly available data to very sensitive confidential data.




This privilege may grant access to sensitive data from a significant fraction of organizational functions, allow interruption of critical organizational services, or its exploit could lead to significant privilege escalation.
