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

The lessons learned from public figure attacks are the life’s blood for protective details to improve. To learn from the mistakes of others. Every serious detail should know the Cantu ambush, as well as Herrhausen, Hariri, Shevardnadze, Londono, and on and on. Major kudos to the pros at ISDA for making these cases known. If you’re not a member and you protect public figures, you need to join ISDA.
