Neil Doyle is one of world's top investigative journalists, as well as an acclaimed author and a leading expert on international terrorism and cyber-terrorism.
He is an acknowledged pioneer in his field, having developed a new form of Internet-based investigative journalism to track the over-expanding activities of terrorist networks such as al-Qaeda. He offers privileged insights into one of the hottest topics of the day.
The unique nature of his work provides many analogies for businesses to draw on, as it involves balancing risk and security, as well as cutting-edge innovation and supreme self-motivation. As a specialist in real-time intelligence gathering, much of what he sees on a daily basis would be classified as secret by government agencies.
Areas of Expertise
He is able to help businesses by identifying:
• emerging risks in vulnerable industries and geographic areas
• likely methods of attack
• techniques used by terrorist groups to raise illicit funding
• covert communication and infiltration methods
His first book, Terror Tracker, predicted the suicide bomb attacks in London in 2005. Neil's second book - Terror Base UK - was published in the UK in January 2006. He’s been covering the activities of terrorist groups for nearly 15 years and al-Qaeda in particular since 1993. He's been and widely quoted in the media at home and abroad and has been a consultant to numerous organisations, including NBC News, the BBC's Panorama programme, and Channel Four's Dispatches.
Terror Tracker was the subject of a special two-part series broadcast on CBS Evening News, which was watched by around 25 million people. He's been interviewed on ITV News, BBC Newsnight, BBC News 24, BBC Breakfast, London Tonight, NBC Nightly News, CBS Evening News, Fox News, PBS, CNBC, France One, and Germany's DW-TV. He also writes for national newspapers, including the Sunday Times, The Sun, the Mail on Sunday and the Washington Times.
Neil is able to clearly explain the nature of the threat that groups such as al-Qaeda currently poses, and his talks are often accompanied by a multimedia presentation featuring the latest video footage and documents produced by terrorist groups.
In February 2006, Neil was invited to deliver a presentation to the Politics and Terrorism conference at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies in Whitehall. He has also briefed the staff of the US Senate judiciary committee. He is due to speak at this summer’s Edinburgh International Book Festival.
Neil's work on the prospect of nuclear terrorism was cited by the Rand Corporation in a report to the US president and Congress. He's also been cited in reports by the CATO Institute, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.
