G Suite updates blog had a post recently about a new change to the admin roles. In a nutshell, when you want to grant a user the role “Service settings” then he/she will not get access to the Security Center by default. The old behavior before was that when you give the “Service settings” role, then the delegated user will get access to Security Center.
Effects of the new changes
Now you will have to manually give the “Security Center” role manually for any admin who was or want to access the security center in the G Suite admin console.
How to enroll in Google Advanced Protection Program to enhance the #Security of your Google account whether that was a consumer account or a #GSuite enabled account?
I list here the requirements for that, and the consequences of enabling Advanced Protection Program on your account and what are the actual steps that you need to do in order to do that.
You will need two security keys. I use and like Google Titan Security Keys. You can get them from the Google Store or ebay or anywhere else.

When organizations migrate to G Suite, they expect many of their old processes and systems to migrate as well. This includes the password life-cycle process! Even if an organization is starting up with G Suite, having a password life-cycle option is a good security practice and it will help securing the user accounts.
Out of the box, there is no password reset cycle or life-cycle in G Suite, but it is not hard to implement using the API or GAM.
In this article, I’ll explain how it can be done using GAM, then in another article, I’ll demonstrate how to do it with the APIs (using App Maker and maybe some other tool as well).
