About Our Founder
Ishayau (Sigi) Horowitz (1946 – 2013) – A man in the service of truth.
Ishayau (Sigi) Horowitz was the former Head of the Scientific Interrogation Department and Polygraph Laboratories of the Israeli Police. Later, he established the Horowitz Polygraph Institute – the first civilian polygraph institute in Israel.
The institute has become a leading training and certification center for polygraph examiners, priding itself in its experienced professionals, and Sigi’s dream: to educate, to enlighten, to share, and to give.
Sigi had a keen ability to foresee future market trends and demands in his field. In 1985, and as evidence of his insight, he led the development of an innovative integrity questionnaire for screening job candidates. The first version was available in paper and pencil format and was later one of the first tests of its kind to be offered online. Years later, this tool remains the basis for many of Midot’s current products.
Above all, Sigi truly believed that he could help make the workplace better for managers and employees alike. His vision of making integrity a world standard was not mere rhetoric – it became our mission.
