INDEPENDENT SECURITY ADVISORS
Overview and History
Independent Security Advisors LLC, is a disabled veteran owned company based in Maryland that provides consulting, training, and other services on matters of national security, terrorism, extremism, domestic violence and executive or diplomatic protection.
Founded by the CEO in 1998 as a small family run security company in Georgia, the company now operates across the United States and Internationally.
In 2011 we started to provide dignitary and executive protection, physical security and other services to a select group of clients in the DC region. Since then our services and client base has continued to expand, and in 2013 we joined a consortium of companies providing security services to both government and commercial clients.
Today ISA provides diplomatic level security, executive protection, witness protection, and assists victims of human trafficking. Its worth noting that outside of Government and Law Enforcement, few can provide a more complete or customized level of service.
ISA is part of a network of security providers, and has regional teams in New England, the Washington DC region, Atlanta Georgia, Columbia South Carolina, Florida, Nevada, and California. With partners in Ohio, Missouri, Washington State, and Texas, ISA can provide services to most corners of the country.
ISA international partners are selected from the finest protective service firms in the world. Each company is vetted and has agreed to support our clients with the same level of service we insist on here in the US. This network allows us to serve our clients in the UK, China, Mexico, the Caribbean and the Middle East.
In 2011 ISA conducted its first training program for law enforcement, a dignitary protection course focused on the security of local and state elected officials.
This was followed by training programs sponsored, and hosted by the University of Maryland Public Safety Training Academy, and from other law enforcement training facility's nationwide.
Today our training division works with law enforcement, corporate and private security providing basic and advanced programs of instruction that are accredited and recognized for in-service credit, college credit, and endorsed by the International Foundation of Protection Officers.
These programs include:
- Dignitary and Executive Protection
- Terrorism and Extremism
- Physical Security
- Use of Force
- Specialized Drivers and Medical Courses
ISA is the parent organization behind the Domestic Violence Action Network. Re-established in 2016, this network of security providers assists victims of domestic violence in partnership with law enforcement, state, local and private domestic violence organizations.
ISA provides close protection, secure transport, close escort, and other services as needed. This network also helps raise money for our DV partners so they can continue to serve those in need.
ISA is registered with the charter office of assessments and taxation for the state of Maryland as a Limited Liability Corporation and is a licensed and insured Private Detective Agency (License No. 106-4274)
