Tony Scotti

Founder

International Security Driver Association

"Let history speak for itself. What you do today is your history tomorrow."

For more than 46 years, Tony Scotti catered to the training needs of corporations and public service agencies. He trained governments, corporations, law enforcement agencies, and military organizations to avoid vehicle violence. For five decades, his training programs have been conducted in over 40 countries, students from seventy -four countries have attended his programs on five continents.

He combined his knowledge of science (holding a B.S. in Engineering from Northeastern University) and vehicle dynamics with firsthand experience gained while conducting real-world security operations in high-risk locales worldwide. Tony used his skills and expertise in analyzing incidents to create a mathematical model for vehicle attacks.

In 1999, Tony sold his company and went into semi-retirement. He became a consultant for Mercedes Benz, assisting Mercedes Benz in introducing the Guard Car (armored car) into the U.S. market.

In early 2012 Tony developed the International Security Driver Association (ISDA) as a way to give back to the community. ISDA’s mission is to provide and support an international forum of protective services providers who share knowledge for the ultimate purpose of enhancing professional and business standards. ISDA serves the protective services community with an emphasis on secure transportation and security driving. Our members are security practitioners who supply protective services to corporate executives, high-net-worth individuals, military personnel, law enforcement agents, and officers.

Over the past five decades, Tony has authored several books and website articles, including:

  • Executive Safety & International Terrorism — Professional Driving Techniques
  • Three Seconds to Safety
  • The Ambush Book
  • SecurityDriver.com (SDC) — A source of information for the security community, specifically targeting those security professionals whose duties require them to supply safe and secure transportation for their executives and/or clients.
  • Police Driver.Com — The gateway to a collection of educational information and resources for the driver trainer.
