As one of the most renowned figures and prolific writers in the aviation security industry, Philip Baum has been a champion of profiling passengers and taking a more common sense approach to security screening. He has openly condemned the “security theatre’”and the over-reliance on technology to identify threats.
Having started his career with Trans World Airlines’ (TWA) security subsidiary, he worked his way up the ladder as part of their Heathrow operation, becoming Duty Security Manager at Terminal 3.
Following this, he moved to the international division’s HQ, becoming a trainer and auditor. By the time he left TWA, he was Manager of Security Training and Auditing (International Operations).
In 1996, he established an aviation security training and consultancy company – Green Light Ltd – which has a number of projects in Asia and the Pacific.
He regularly acts as a consultant to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and is frequently asked to Chair panel discussions and speak at conferences by leading industry associations – including the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). He is also the Editor of Aviation Security International, the industry’s trade journal.
As a result of his encyclopaedic knowledge of attacks and disruption to aviation, including everything from terrorist attacks to disruptive passengers, he regularly appears on BBC, CNN, Sky and ITN news, particularly in the aftermath of attacks, and is widely quoted in the international media for his expertise. Following the disappearance of Flight MH370, Philip was called upon time and time again to give an expert opinion on the situation, which, to this day, has been the most accurate.
