COOPERATION & DEVELOPMENT
With good strategy and the right methodology, organizations can solve complex problems. In 2012, when we looked at the global picture, we saw organisations working in silos with little synergies and a lack of cross-fertilization. We saw a need for a different approach and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it. That’s why we founded ISA.
ISA (registered brand of “Intelligence & Science Applications EURL”) is a strategic intelligence company leader in Europe in the field of Intelligence, security and defence.
Incorporated in France and active internationally, the company can rely on multiannual know-how in Open-Source Intelligence, Knowledge Management, strategic forecasting and CBRNe.
what we do
ISA improves the resilience of countries, systems and people to reduce their vulnerability to major threats and incidents by providing strategies, methodologies and technological solutions.
ISA offers a wide range of advisory services in the fields of Intelligence, security and defence.
Leveraging on the knowledge and skills gained by participating in several security/defence-related research projects as well as on the experience of its professionals, ISA provides its clients with the expertise and capabilities they require in order to meet their needs. The company’s advisory services have been delivered to governments, public agencies and large industrial groups based in Europe, West & North Africa.
