It’s a sad reality but one that’s hard to escape. Active assailant incidents are happening with greater frequency across the globe. As violence grows, it poses a severe and unpredictable risk to companies, institutions and people. In July 2021, the number of mass shootings in the US rose 20 percent versus the year prior, according to the Washington Post. As we carry forward in a mid-pandemic world and emerge from isolation, tensions remain high and threats are ever evolving. Organizations today must be prepared for not only active shooters, but assailants using other lethal weapons including knives, bombs, and vehicles. To enhance their security efforts and peace of mind, more organizations are choosing to be proactive with BRP's Active Assailant & Threat insurance protection.

our product

Backed by an A rated carrier, BRP offers specialized insurance coverage that helps to protect your organization from every angle — including critical response services from the world's leading private security firm.  It's not always always easy to identify the motive behind the attack, so this coverage also doesn't require it to be terrorism or workplace violence (although both would be covered under the policy); it has significantly broader triggers – even if an incident doesn't occur, but is only threatened. Ongoing or single-event coverage is available.
