This Week in Net: From DDoS attacks in Australia to helping protect personal information in the cloud
Welcome to our weekly review of stories from our blog and other sources, covering a range of topics from product announcements, tools and features to disruptions on the Internet. João Tomé is joined by our CTO, John Graham-Cumming.
In this week's program, we “travel” to Australia to talk about recent DDoS attacks on Australian university websites, and threaten more attacks (that includes some suggestions). We also talk about Cloudflare’s commitment to the 2023 Summit for Democracy that is happening in Washington D.C.. Europe’s GDPR regulation is also present when we go over how we are helping protect personal information in the cloud, all across the world. We also go technical, explaining the many faces of our Oxy framework and its importance in powering Cloudflare services and products. We also do a “show and tell” with our R2 Pricing Calculator , that compares our object storage prices with AWS S3.
In the Around NET end of the show segment, we have Sofia Cardita, based in Lisbon and a clinical psychologist turn engineer from our Radar team. She will talk about our new URL scan tool .
