Focus on your other priorities.. Leave your security and investigations to Black Ice. 

Black Ice Security Service, Inc (BISS) is a licensed private security firm in Northern Virginia.  Since 1998, Black Ice has provided protection and investigation services to local, national and international private and government clients.

Within the industry and with our clients, Black Ice Security’s name is synonymous with Honesty, Integrity and Probity in every task we do.  We cannot guaranty results, what we promise is:


: fairness and straightforwardness of conduct 

: adherence to the facts



: firm adherence to a code of especially moral values


HONESTY implies a refusal to lie, steal, or deceive in any way. HONOR suggests an active or anxious regard for the standards of one's profession, calling, or position. INTEGRITY implies trustworthiness and incorruptibility to a degree that one is incapable of being false to a trust, responsibility, or pledge. PROBITY implies tried and proven honesty or integrity.  [Definitions from:]

We believe that these traits have served us well, and more importantly our clients.  Since 1998, Black Ice has diligently built a reputation for these traits and coupled that with seasoned expertise in investigations, protection, and problem solving advice.

A call to Black Ice is free; the solution to a problem or a sensitive situation is invaluable.

Clients sometimes make costly mistakes by selecting companies that do not abide by the above mentioned traits which may cause embarrassment, higher costs, increased liability exposure and delays in problem resolution.

While Black Ice does not accept all work we are asked to perform, if we believe that we cannot effectively find a solution or if the situation is unacceptable for us, we will give you an honest assessment up front – we will cut to the chase to save you time and ensure clarity of effort.
