Sir Philip McDougall Rutnam, KCB (born 19 June 1965) is a British civil servant and current Permanent Secretary at the Home Office. Prior to this, he was the Permanent Secretary at the Department for Transport for five years.
In January 2018 The Register published a story which asked Why did top Home Office civil servant lobby Ofcom for obscure kit ban?. They summarised their revelation that Rutnam had personally intervened in 2017, citing "national security", to revoke the legalisation of GSM gateways with the observation that "GSM gateway prohibition was way below Sir Philip Rutnam's paygrade".
