Philip Ingram MBE Bio
Philip Ingram MBE BSc MA is a journalist specialising in the security and intelligence arenas who has built on a long and senior military career as an intelligence and security officer and strategic planner; he maintains a close interest in global events. For his sins, he is recognised as a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons expert having studied these subjects as part of his first degree and masters degree. Philip now runs his own media company, Grey Hare Media, that specialises in delivering informed content. Between the Army and this he has been a sales and marketing director for a large cast steel manufacturer and then managing director of a B2B Security focused print and online publication.
Whilst serving with the British Army for over 26 years and leaving as a Colonel, he has been fortunate to command some fascinating units including 1 Military Intelligence Battalion that had unique intelligence feeds for an Army unit and had a specialist counterintelligence capability capable of identifying and monitoring hostile intelligence agencies and other organisations.
Philip is frequently asked to comment for BBC TV News and Radio, Turkish TRT World TV, Russian RT.com and has given content in the past to BBC Mundo and Japanese NTV. He has presented INTERPOL World TV in Singapore in 2015 and again in 2017 and taken part in BBC Inside Out documentaries on online terrorism and the expose of Craigslist. He has provided expert commentary for The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and Sunday Mirror and is often sought out for expert opinion.
Philip writes for the International Security Expo’s online magazine, HQ: The home of global security, and chairs high-level roundtable and larger spotlight conferences for them. Last November he chaired a conference for the UK Home Office and MET Police bringing senior politicians and police officers from many of the cities affected by recent terror attacks from across the globe to London to identify common lessons and ways forward.
He has also chaired Chief Security Officer conferences for the international ASIS organisation, been keynote speaker at other events, written for Security News Desk, Security Middle East, Counter Terror Business and City Security publications and more.
If that were not enough he retains other business interests in the armoured vehicle arena, specialist molecular detection and he is the Chairman of a specialist Cyber Intelligence company that tracks terrorist activity online and provides intelligence support for a London based investment fund.
