Are you concern about G-Suite security ?

In case you're utilizing G Suite or considering G Suite, a few inquiries regarding security of your data may have entered your brain, since all your organization email and your business records (in the event that you are utilizing Google Drive for cloud reinforcement of nearby documents) are put away in Google's server farms.


G Suite, as you’d expect, has multiple levels of built-in security.
For one, Google's server farm security is better than that of numerous corporate systems. Google has more than 450 full-time security designers and some of them are driving specialists in the security field. 
Information moving inside Google's server farms and to and from its server farms is scrambled utilizing impeccable forward mystery. With culminate forward mystery, breaking an encryption key would not benefit a programmer in any way.
So, what’s a hacker or other would-be intruder to do? As with many web applications that have hardened data center security, the easiest access point for a hacker may well be the login screen.


The G Suite User Login

Google gives various levels of local assurance to keep a word reference assault. Be that as it may, what can you, as a client of G Suite do to influence the as of now to secure login screen more secure.
1. Use a long password
By default, a G Suite password can be up to 100 characters long. Spaces within passwords are fine, which means that phrases can be used. A G Suite admin can increase the minimum required password length and the maximum possible password length.
Google Apps Password Management
Years ago, we worked with a company that used news story headlines for their server passwords. One was “O.J. Simpson freed from jail, leaves Las Vegas”. These were easy to remember and only a minor inconvenience to periodically key in. A phrase password (your own is even better than a news story headline) is more secure and is easier to remember than a password such as T%e3$&1#.
2. Keep a secure record of all your passwords
Only keep a physical record of your G Suite password (and all your other passwords) in an encrypted, local password database such as 1Password. In other words, don’t write your password down on a piece of paper.
Also, your password database is the one file that you might want to keep on the ground and out of the cloud. Back up the file to a USB drive and keep it in a locked cabinet at home or work.
3. Enable G Suite 2-Step Verification
2-step verification has to be set up by a G Suite administrator. It can be made either optional for users or required for all users.
Google Apps 2-Step Verification
Once 2-step verification has been enabled by a G Suite administrator, as a user, you can enable the option for your account by going into My Account > Signing Into Google > 2-Step Verification.
What if you’re traveling overseas and lose your mobile phone? No problem, you can have a backup mobile number that belongs to a spouse or a friend.
What if you both lose your mobile phones or you’re both out of a mobile coverage area for a prolonged period of time? No problem, you can generate a list of one-time use codes that you can keep in your wallet or store in a cloud application that’s completely separate from G Suite.
There are additional options for accessing G Suite when 2-Step Verification is enabled.
4. Use a Physical Security Key
Within 2-Step Verification, you can also purchase and use a physical security key.
It’s important to note that using a security key does not supersede the ability to use a verification code – it’s just that using a security key in place of a verification code provides an additional layer of security.

With some basic steps, you as a user can make an already secure cloud application even more secure.
