The objective of SecurityDriver.Com (SDC) is to create an exceptional learning environment for the viewer. The site was initially designed and developed for those security professionals whose duties require them to supply safe and secure transportation for their executives and/or clients. But over time, SDC content has proven to be a valuable resource for all those working in the protective services profession.

Viewers from all aspects of the Protective Services Profession and all parts of the world have downloaded articles on driving, armored vehicles, surveillance detection, using Social Media to enhance your Brand, the business of security, news, and technology that affects the profession.

Although Tony and Larry manage SecurityDriver.Com, the content is supplied by ISDA Members. They represent all aspects of the profession, Corporate – High Net Worth – Private Security – Entertainment – Government and Law Enforcement. They deeply believe in the ISDA Mantra – Share Knowledge – Paying It Forward, and helping for the sake of helping. They write about a variety of subjects all with the goal of enhancing knowledge. Their knowledge is gained from experience (The average ISDA Member has 15 years of experience in the profession). The members owe no allegiance to a training entity hence they do not shy away from sensitive topics, such as the state of training, the misuse of the G.I Bill, and the problems of gaining experience.
The Need for the Site
For decades, statistics have indicated that the overwhelming majority of security incidents involving corporate executives and high-profile individuals, including government and military, have occurred while the targeted individual was in or around their vehicle. When statistics and history are examined, we can understand why security practitioners, those who supply job opportunities, point to transportation as the weak link in the personal security chain. The safety and security of the vehicle occupants during this most dangerous period of time has been and is the responsibility of those who supply Secure Transportation. Through the ISDA and SDC Network, we have a 20-year history of assisting the community to mitigate that risk.
SecurityDriver.Com is sponsored by the International Security Driver Association (ISDA)
