INTERNATIONAL CIVIL SECURITY INDUSTRY

– ACTUAL INSIGHTS –

The massive changes that globalization has brought to all areas of life has also created grave concerns for both personal safety and the protection of investments located in critical areas around the globe.

Security, therefore, has taken the forefront in international, governmental and corporate strategies. A significant lack of sufficiently secure and safe conditions prevents and even jeopardizes economic developments, and nowadays even sports events carry the label “Mission Impossible”.

The need for qualified Protection Operatives capable of providing services related to the protection of assets (sensitive installations) and VIPs such as experts, engineers, journalists, UN employees and even cargo ship’s crews has increased tremendously.

Today, due to the high demand and need to privatize certain functions of government to the civilian workforce, this specialized field of protection services has become one of the fastest growing sectors.

Countries, companies and organizations worldwide are currently reestablishing themselves in order to fill the void in the security field.

A few hundred years ago in the western world there were those who chose to serve in the protection of their employers, and they were called “Musketeers”. In the Far East, they were known as “Samurai”. No matter what they were called, all knew the definition of their profession and their duties: to keep their Protégé’s safe and secure wherever they went.

Many romantic stories and legends were told about these unique individuals and in most of these stories they were described as the bravest of warriors, heroes or supermen.

This profession created an aura around those who chose to specialize and live by the rules of the field. It is one of the oldest professions in the world. This sector gave society a few norms of behavior that gained high respect and honor from its communities.

In the 21st century, those who deal with the protection of their employers are called Bodyguards, Close Protection Operatives, and VIP/Executive Protection Specialists.

More recently, they have been called PSD Operators and Personal Security Details/Detachments because of their deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan which have become known as the most dangerous areas for VIPs (not necessary heads of state).

These specially trained and highly skilled personnel are hired to protect individuals or assets of organizations that operate in High-Risk environments like Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and South America.


In order for this trend to continue to grow and to help the Civilian Security Industry to develop, we at ISA-ISRAEL have completed and established the necessary arrangements, professional requirements, evaluation methods, programs and training facilities needed for a successful execution of a unique Competitive Qualification Quest that will become a special documentary TV program to be broadcasted worldwide in order to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Develop awareness, understanding, and recognition for the contribution and vitality of protection operatives active in classic close protection in general. Also, to those protection operatives active in high risk protection in particular, in the struggle against violent crime and terrorism throughout the world.
  2. Expose and familiarization to the audience with specific qualities demanded from these anonymous “Modern Samurais”, such as mental and physical toughness and many more other human qualities.
  3. “Open a window” for the entire community to catch a glimpse of a domain that is usually shrouded in mystery and secrecy.
  4. Encourage professionalism and highly qualified protection operatives to become more involved and influential in the protection field in their own areas.
  5. Share with colleagues of their own country a unique professional pro-active methodology and an Israeli-style expertise directly from the world’s homeland security laboratory.
  6. Encourage the audience to improve and enhance their mental and physical abilities for better skilled functioning, and more expertise in coping with situations that may result from acts of violent crime and terrorism nationwide.
  7. Spark the audience’s feelings of national pride and build up more respect within the countries’ populations in order to support the contestant’s activities in taking part for the quest of excellence and professionalism, in an entertaining and positive way.
  8. Develop an international infrastructure and system that will continue to conduct this worldwide competition every year.
To obtain this objective we have freed ourselves of all possible barriers, Such as Religion, Language, Political Conflicts, etc.

  • Security company’s employees
  • Individuals active as Protection operatives.
  • Former graduates as VIP/Close Protection operative of ISA – ISRAEL.
  • Certified as CPOs from any other training organization worldwide.
  • Females and males age 21-50 with or without any prior experience in security.

It is important to understand that being a “Modern Samurai” does not mean you should look like “Rambo” or beehive and live as a “Ninja”.  This is a preconceived stigma that overlooks quality vs. quantity. A modern samurai possesses the qualities of intelligence along with good physical and mental strength, and no prior criminal history. The most qualified will be awarded for his/her achievements.

Introduction to ISA-ISRAEL

The International Security Academy – Israel is a practical training organization, which was founded and directed by Mr. Mirza David together with a group of senior retired officers from the Israeli security establishments.  The ISA-Israel specializes in Protection & Counter Terrorism qualification.

Since the opening in 1987, ISA’s team has trained and qualified more than 15050 protection personnel and management from more than 80 countries worldwide.

Since more than a decade  there has been a  growing tendency from within the authorities in transferring more responsibility for public security missions, traditionally held in the past by the law enforcement factor to Civilian Security Companies / Organizations In order for this trend to prosper and to help the Civilian Security Industry to develop, we must improve the entire security industry personnel and accumulate as much of the know-how and practical experience as possible.

The objective of the International Security Academy – ISRAEL, which holds professional and business relationships with many colleagues around the world, is to share with those participating in the Academy’s seminars and courses the know-how and practical experience which has been accumulated in the past and the present.  Furthermore, this shall continue into the future in the utmost professional manner in order to carry out our missions, as well as developing broader Business Opportunities based on professionalism.

The program offered will be available for all to participate in, putting aside barriers such as religion, political opinions, nationality, gender etc.

Trainees and colleagues from different countries have and continue to participate in our training courses.

Being a respected international company is a contributing factor to the enrichment of the professional aspect as well as to the creation of both working and amicable relations among trainees.

If you want to be considered the Best, you must train with the Best!!!
