With a mature product security program already in place, the top priorities for Adobe’s new security chief are to strengthen the security of the company’s hosted services and its internal infrastructure. For the past several years, Arkin has overseen Adobe’s software product security efforts as leader of the Adobe Secure Software Engineering Team (ASSET) and the Adobe Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT).

While the secure software engineering work will continue, Arkin’s focus is strengthening the security of the company’s hosted services, like the Adobe Creative Cloud and the Adobe Marketing Cloud. “I think that our secure product lifecycle and the work we’ve been doing with our shrinkwrapped products is very mature,” Arkin said. “We’ve been doing this for years now.” […] ______________________________________________ Visit the InfoSec News Security Bookstore Best Selling Security Books and More! http://www.shopinfosecnews.org
