Google says it warns 4,000 users of state sponsored attacks each month

Google notifies approximately 4,000 of its users each month of state-sponsored cyber attacks, according to Diane Greene, the company’s senior vice president.

Greene, who is also a member of Alphabet’s board of directors, revealed the information during the Fortune magazine conference in Aspen, Colorado. The executive did not reveal what portion of those users live in Canada and the U.S.

Partway through last year, Facebook began warning its users of state sponsored attacks, though unlike Google, the social media giant has yet to reveal how many warnings it issues in a given month.
