Alerts for government-backed attacks sent by default starting October 10th

09/11/2018

What’s new: In August, we launched the option for G Suite admins to receive a security alert if we believed their users were being targeted by a government-backed attack. At the time, admins had to explicitly enable these alerts. We heard that many admins weren’t aware of this alert and so weren’t receiving this critical information. As a result, we turned these alerts ON for most admins starting October 10th, 2018.

 

G suite alert for government-backed attacks

 

Admins will receive a security alert if we believe their users are being targeted by a government-backed attack.

 

You’ll still have the option to turn these alerts OFF by navigating to Reports > Manage alerts > Government-backed attack warning in the Admin console—or you can simply opt out any time you receive an alert email.

You can disable these alerts in the Admin console.

 

Note that if you previously enabled and then disabled these alerts, they will remain off.
