ISCA designs unique training programs based on heightened awareness and early detection methods
for security, counter-terrorism, and public safety efforts.
ISCA fosters Search Detect React® — what began as Ran Cohens method of early detection based on
heightened awareness and behavior profiling, and has since been developed into operation protocols
and procedures used by many governmental and private entities. SDR specializes in proactively
identifying illicit intentions before they come to fruition by using heightened awareness, the human
factor, and local social and cultural norms. As such, ISCA has experience handling myriad threats and
being prepared for new, unknown ones.
We provide specialized training for security professionals including simulated incidents to keep
security personnel consistently prepared, and urban terrain analysis. We are experts in applying the
Human Factor and behavior profiling to identify illicit activities, potential dangers and situational
abnormalities, expressly straying from ethnic profiling procedures. Each program is tailor-made,
depending on specific needs, local cultural norms in the community and legal guidelines.
ISCA integrates tailor-made abnormal behavior detection, heightened awareness, and preparedness
SDR programs into existing security protocols of large entities in order to maximize capabilities and
make security circles less readable by adversaries. Such projects include collaboration with the Dutch
Royal Military Police in the Netherlands Schiphol Airport, Dutch Railways (NS), and Amsterdam Police,
ISCAs implementation of SDR in Schiphol Airport won the Security & Safety
Amsterdam Project of the Year Award. SDR was also acknowledged in the European Union Agency for
Fundamental Rights report, Towards More Effective Policing, Understanding and Preventing
Discriminatory Ethnic Profiling: A Guide.
ISCA Research Focus:
ISCA seeks to participate in innovative research and development projects that address the security
of societies by advancing practices and policies while maintaining the importance of democratic
values and freedoms in everyday life.
Our concentration on both research and development and operational training allows ISCA to
simultaneously bring theoretical and practical value to each one of our projects.
Our main research interests lie in the subjects of deviant behavior, mass crowd security,
radicalization, crime prevention, counter-terrorism, community policing, and crisis management.
Our practical strengths include negating ethnic profiling from security practices, detecting abnormal
behavior, closing gaps between levels of command, training programs, red team exercises, urban
terrain analysis, and local key indicators.
