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.
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.
His topics include:
- Aviation security
