Steve has been working in Information Security for over 20 years helping transform organisations with a mix of hard technical control improvement and pragmatic risk management, whilst improving the awareness of Information Security from the top to the bottom of the enterprise. Steve is currently working in the Mining sector where he is helping raise Information Security awareness and posture across the organisation, and more specifically the mines where standard corporate InfoSec requires a different approach; especially where industrial, or process, control systems are concerned or the operating constraints are challenging.
