The primary objective of the Implementation Support and Development-Security Section (ISD-SEC) is to support ICAO Contracting States in resolving significant security deficiencies identified through the ICAO Aviation Security Audit Programme (USAP), and to assist them in their efforts to implement Standards and Recommended Practices of Annex 9 and Annex 17. ISD-SEC support thus enables States to meet their aviation security obligations through the promotion of partnerships and coordination of assistance between States, industry, international financial institutions and various other stakeholders.
 
The mandate for the Security Programme of the Implementation Support and Development Section was determined at the 37th Session of the ICAO Assembly by Resolution A37-17, the ICAO Comprehensive Aviation Security Strategy and the ICAO Declaration on Aviation Security.
 
ISD-SEC accomplishes its objective through the development, organization and coordination of relevant seminars, workshops and assistance projects as well as through a robust aviation security training programme.
 
In terms of training, ISD-SEC provides support to regional, sub-regional and national security training efforts by overseeing the development of appropriate training packages and providing support  to ICAO endorsed training centres in the development and delivery of training programmes. As part of these efforts ISD provides oversight functions to  the Aviation Security Training Centres (ASTCs) and the Aviation Security Training Packages (ASTPs).     
 
Additionally, ISD-SEC is responsible for managing the Aviation Security Professional Management Course (PMC) which was developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in collaboration with the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University.
