Pieter Ockers
Security Program Manager, Adobe


Pieter Ockers is a senior security program manager and a member of Adobe’s product security incident response team (PSIRT). In an effort to bend the growth curve of application vulnerabilities reported to Adobe’s PSIRT by third-party security researchers, Pieter launched an internal bug hunt contest at Adobe as a cost-effective method to reduce security vulnerabilities while increasing security awareness and building a community of internal pen testers. Based in San Francisco, Pieter is passionate about engaging with the security research community to build a stronger, more secure and resilient ecosystem.
