About Us


Independent Security AdvisorsBased in Maryland USA, Independent Security Advisors (ISA) was formed as an LLC in 2011. ISA is the continuation and expansion of a small private security company founded by the CEO in 1998 and first located in Hinesville, Georgia.

As a small executive protection contractor/sub-contractor our work was primarily in Atlanta and Savannah Georgia with a few clients in Florida. We provided limited physical security consulting, some training and volunteered our services to local victims of domestic violence. In 2001 we moved to Missouri with operations in St. Louis and other major cities in the region and moved again in 2004 to New York.

In 2011 we set down roots in Maryland and built what is today a well respected and highly adaptive security services and training firm that works with law enforcement, corporate and private security organizations and institutions of higher education.

dvsmISA founded the Domestic Violence Action Foundation in 2015, building a network of security providers to assist victims of domestic violence. In 2016, the foundation joined with a national 501c3 Protection from Abuse.org.

The ISA consulting program has grown as we have recruited more subject matter experts from across the political, national security, military and world governmental and commerce affairs arena.

The Independent Security Advisors protective service program has evolved and can provide diplomatic level security, executive protection, witness protection, and assists victims of human trafficking. Its worth repeating that outside of Government and Law Enforcement, few can provide a more complete or customized security program.

We achieve our goals by employing agents, master instructors, subject matter experts and other specialists who truly enjoy working in security or protective services and find the challenges of this work fulfilling. We have recruited from the very best security services and law enforcement in the United States. Former members of the Secret Service, Diplomatic Security Service, US Military Protective Service, law enforcement and private corporate security specialists bring their years of experience and training to ISA and we in turn offer that to our clients.
