    I think that recipients of such messages should be permitted to sue Google/Microsoft.
    "With great power comes great responsibility"... the company should better manage awareness programs and every possible alternative measure of safeguarding business information...such as management identities. Perhaps some type of filters relative to the company name, or employee names could be utilized. Red flags can potentially warn company security and protective steps can be taken...but not just for the company. For patrons that are unaware, these messages, seeming to come from controllers, can appear legit and quickly undermine both business and personal interests.
