Corporate Social Responsibility

We empower our employees to do good in the world with Global Citizenship programs

Making a difference around your connected world

Whether it’s building houses in the Philippines, donating $1M USD for Japan earthquake relief, working with local parent-teacher organizations in the United States, or providing Safe Surfing ePosters to 100 schools in Belgium, we encourage our employees to share their time, expertise, and goodwill.

And by matching their efforts every step of the way, we empower them to give as generously as they can.

Since 2008 we have targeted 1% of the previous year's post-GAAP profit to fund our Global Citizenship programs, and today one quarter of all Trenders participate in Give and Match programs supporting community efforts from Texas, to Ottawa, to the Philippines.

Global citizenship and philanthropic projects

Philanthropic giving is one of the key initiatives of Trend Micro’s corporate social responsibilities.  With geographically diverse teams around the world, our Global Citizenship initiative was created under the leadership of Jenny Chang, Chief Culture Officer. Employees have the opportunity to help those in need by building new homes for the underprivileged, raising Give and Match donations for unforeseen disaster relief, organizing annual service projects at our company sales kickoff events, and more.

Internet safety and cybersecurity education

Aiming to empower communities for a safer digital world, the Trend Micro Initiative for Education is the parent program of several outreach initiatives. So far, we have reached over 1.5 million kids and parents through our Internet Safety for Kids and Families initiative thanks in large part to our network of over 900 volunteers around the world.

And we plan to extend our reach even further with the new Internet Safety for Small Businesses and Cybersecurity Education for Universities programs.

Regions in action

In addition to participating in corporate-sponsored programs, our passionate employees often create or modify community outreach activities as needs arise. We are involved with computer programing training for underprivileged children from the rural area of Taiwan, helping recent university graduates from Egypt be better prepared for a career in cybersecurity, and rebuilding communities after the big earthquake in Japan.

Fighting cybercrime

With cybercrime gaining ground in recent years, security vendors and law enforcement agencies have been working hard to secure the internet from malicious threats. We want to make sure we do our part by sharing resources and working on investigation strategies with organizations in the private and public sectors, including the FBI, INTERPOL, and leading security vendors.

These partnerships have led to numerous key victories that have, in turn, strengthened our desire to see a world in which the internet is safe for everyone.

We are a proud founding member of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord (CTA), a public commitment among more than 100+ premier global companies to promote a safer online world.
