Open Briefing is delighted to become a partner in Project Galileo. The project is Cloudflare’s response to cyber attacks launched against important, yet vulnerable targets, like artistic groups, humanitarian organisations, and the voices of political dissent. We are honoured to be joining this initiative alongside Amnesty International, the Committee to Protect Journalists, and the Council of Europe.
