Google gives G Suite administrators a warning option

for attacks by governments
Google has made a feature available to G Suite administrators that allows them to get a warning that user accounts are the target of government attacks.

In the announcement of the feature, Google writes that such a warning is sent if it believes that state hackers are attempting to take over a particular account, for example through phishing or malware. A warning would not mean that an account was actually taken over. The function is off by default.

For example, when administrators enable the feature, they can set who receives a warning. They can also choose to take action after receiving a warning, for example by providing the relevant account with additional security measures. Google warns users since 2012 if it believes that an attack by a government takes place.
