Into the Cloud: Steve Bumphrey, Traka

What does ‘security’ mean to you?

Security means feeling safe and confident in my everyday working/home environment.

What made you want to work in the industry?

The constantly evolving and exciting, cutting edge technology and feeling confident that my company offers the best of the best when it comes to innovation.

If you could change anything in the industry, what would it be?

Poor image of those that work in parts of the industry. Everybody wants to feel safe and should respect all those that work hard every day to make the world a safer and more enjoyable place to live and work. 

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?

Being a Granddad to 4 fantastic grandchildren always creates moments to cherish. They are always funny without knowing it, from telling stories to dancing and fooling about. There are always funny things happening each and every weekend.

What three traits define you?

Honesty, self-belief and teamwork.

What’s the most important trend you see today?

Smartphones being used as part of everyday functions

What’s your favourite aspect about working in Security?

People! Without people talking either face to face or via remote sessions, the world will be a strange place to live. People work with people and build confidence in each other.  And the fact is people invest in security solutions from people/companies they trust and respect.

What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume?

 My love of tractors!

If you weren’t working at Traka, what would you be doing?

Working in the agricultural sector. Everybody needs to eat and technology can help produce food in a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective manner.

Where do you see Traka in five years?

Still leading this industry with innovative solutions. Setting the standards that others follow and still having fantastic working relationships with major blue chip, corporate and global businesses.
