The International Security Driver Association (ISDA) serves the Protective Services community.

Whether you are exploring a career in executive protection, honing your expertise, or an established security executive, ISDA offers benchmark educational, networking, and marketing programs.

Why Did We Create ISDA?

Security Driving and Executive Protection describe a profession, a job description that defines a skill set needed to save lives. It is our opinion that social media have twisted them into marketing terms with no regard for the skill sets that define the profession. Unsuspecting individuals are trained in skills that have no market value. Social media is filled with complaints ranging from certification and standards to pay scales and unethical behavior.

ISDA is Committed to the Needs of the Profession

In the current professional environment, there is a significant need for an association that has no alliance to training providers, an association that exists only for the mutual enrichment and advancement of their members. An association committed to meeting the needs of the profession. We are a member-oriented association that serves both the inexperienced and experienced practitioner.

Here is what some of our members have to say about the Association

The International Security Driver Association is the premier organization that every security professional should invest in joining. ISDA publishes factual (you can’t argue with math), tested relevant material that benefits every member. I try to learn something new every day. Some things I learn are useful and some aren’t however; every single time I read an ISDA newsletter or email I find it relevant.The ISDA staff are all experienced EP professionals that have attained superior knowledge and skills that they are willing to share to make every ISDA member a better motor vehicle operator. The information you will receive as an ISDA member may keep you out of an accident, keep you out of somebody else’s accident or get you and your protectee out of danger.I’ve been doing protection work for almost 40 years and driving even longer. I assure you that you cannot make a better investment in yourself or your career than to take advantage of the information available to ISDA members. There are very few places where you can learn the needed skills for protective driving and have those skills recognized by employers all over the world.

Security Driving – Lessons Learned From A Pro

Driving is one aspect of the job that I love the most. It’s also one part of the job that is so very important. When I drive, I get excited. I get motivated. I get ready to do what I was put on this earth to do. If it wasn’t for my driving position, I don’t know what I would be doing — probably still working a job and wishing I was in the EP field, while also constantly thinking about how to get into the profession. This leads me to the point of my article: how does one go about getting their foot in the door of EP work?

Below is what helped me get into the field. I hope you will find the information to be helpful.
