Each October, Adobe looks forward to celebrating National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). It’s a special opportunity to highlight our ongoing security efforts and further engage our employees and engineering community on cybersecurity best practices.

While we’ll mark this year’s occasion a bit differently, with a fully remote workforce, we’re excited to carry on with our yearly tradition and host a number of virtual events for employees to take advantage of throughout the month of October. We’ve invited several speakers, including internal experts and industry guests, to present on topics that are relevant in many aspects of cybersecurity, with a special focus on educating our employees’ on how to stay safe online and #becybersmart in their personal and professional lives. This has never been more important, especially as we navigate this new work environment.

These events include:

These events will be hosted virtually across all our major offices – including San Jose, San Francisco, Lehi, Seattle, Hamburg, and Noida. To further promote awareness, many of the events will begin by showcasing one of our popular security awareness videos – also available to the public for free.

We see our employees as one of our first lines of defense, making it imperative to keep them up to date on best practices that help us maintain a strong security posture at work and at home to stay #becybersmart.

As we know, the security threat landscape is continually changing. Maintaining a strong security awareness program helps to inherently increase your organization’s security posture and defenses.
