New Rules Homepage in the Admin Console Make Security Simpler
Google Workspace Updates | Google is making some updates to how you create, view, and manage rules in the Admin console.

School Matches Are Available in Originality Reports for Education Customers
Google Workspace Updates | Once school matches are enabled by your admin, submitted assignments will automatically be added to your school-owned private repository after an originality report is run. If a match is detected amongst other documents in the repository, the match is included as a flagged passage for the educator to review.
