SPEAKER - Steve Jump
Steve Jump

Steve Jump has an unashamedly technical background, being both an engineering graduate and a chartered engineer. He uses it to translate complex technology into serious business. He is presently head of Corporate Information Security Governance at Telkom South Africa, where he expresses support, sympathy, incredulity, and fortunately, frequent flashes of inspiration at the state of information security governance in business today.

Jump started his career a long time ago in electronic systems engineering, and his practical experience in the design and testing of objects that were supposed to only go bang at the right time and place helped him develop not only a healthy disrespect for poor process and badly written software, but an eye for systemic problems that could not only lead to error and failure, but actually enable fraud.

He has established manufacturing centres and Internet communication providers around Africa, and has broad practical experience in technology, security and systems strategy. From his first encounters with Internet security, when he found out that in fact he didn't have any, he has spent a long time making sure others have the benefit of that knowledge.

Having worked in an industry that is governed and lives according to Moore's law for his entire working career, with in-depth experiential knowledge of electronic and IT systems development and the potential of contemporary software ecosystems, Jump is well able to both identify and predict the changes and risks in information management that consumerisation brings not just to the economics of the enterprise, but to society as a whole.

More recently, Jump has developed comprehensive information security and IT strategies, including enterprise architecture alignment of IT towards business needs, and the creation of a business-centric information security framework. Jump is presently transitioning a conventional IT security group function into a security governance function, almost recognisable as a part of enterprise risk management. He is conversant in the translation of new technologies, new regulatory requirements and new business models into the means to improve governance, reduce costs, and reduce information security risk to business.
