Google Workspace, formerly G Suite, aims to provide organizations, including businesses, education, institutes, and non-profits the tools to collaborate and communicate more effectively, no matter where their teams are.
Unfortunately, there are gaps in the security of Google Workspace. These issues inhibit businesses from using the platform to its full potential without risking the integrity of their data.
Human error is one of the main causes of cyber security breaches. From accidental deletions, to disgruntled employees, it’s very easy to have Google Workspace data deleted, held hostage by ransomware, or corrupted.
In 2021, data breaches due to human error and insider threats cost companies $4.61M on average.
