The project protects nonprofits' websites and networks, and saw attacks quadruple over the last year.
The cybersecurity company Cloudflare went through "soul-searching" seven years ago, and was "deeply embarrassed that it had made the internet a worse place," CEO Matthew Prince told Insider.
Cloudflare protects enterprises' websites and networks from cyberattacks, and makes their computer networks work better.
The incident caused Cloudflare to create Project Galileo, a Harvard-recognized program that protects nonprofits, journalists, and other organizations from attacks.
Cyberattacks have quadrupled against the 1,500 nonprofits and other organizations the project protects, Cloudflare says, when compared to the previous year.
