The catalyst for creating the Secure Transportation News (STN) is to share the volume of information ISDA curates, such as industry news and data, with the Executive Protection and Secure Transportation community. Issue 3 has an article on driving in extreme heat, a collection of articles on the Science of Security DrivingTM, the ISDA Roadmap To Success, and a call for EP and Secure Transportation Products.
Those who will be conducting driver training in this extreme heat be cautious of over-tightening the wheels lug nuts.

International Ballistic Standards App
For those practitioners involved in Secure Transportation and who have a need or may need armored vehicles, I would suggest downloading the Ballistic Standards App and poster from Teijin. The app makes it easier to find the specific data you require relating to international ballistic standards. The app provides you with up-to-date figures of major international standards for different ballistic protection applications – including soft- and hard ballistic protection. The app is available for free on Android and iOS platforms. Download the app or the poster via the link below.
