Deni Athena – Women in Close Protection – An Interview With The BBC

ISDA member Deni Athena was recently interviewed by the BBC. Deni is indicative of the ISDA membership, and we are proud to have DeniDeni as a member. A short introduction from the BBC

“Denida Zinxhiria (Deni) grew up in Albania during a time of social upheaval where it was commonplace to hear bombs and bullets in the street. As a child she remembers her grandmother covering her to protect her from gunfire and says that incident sparked an interest in keeping people safe. Denida worked her way up through private security in Greece and now runs Athena Academy, a security company that trains female bodyguards.”

This post is from the International Security Driver Association

The International Security Driver Association (ISDA) serves the Protective Services community. ISDA’s mission is to support an international forum of protective service providers who share knowledge for the purpose of enhancing the profession.

The most common question we at ISDA get asked is, “Is ISDA for Security Drivers and Secure Transportation Providers only?” The answer is a big NO. ISDA is a valuable resource for all practitioners working in the protection profession. Members of ISDA represent all facets and levels of the protective services profession as an example.
