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 2019, the US suffered more mass shootings — defined as incidents in which four or more people are injured or killed — than any year on record. And 2020 is already outpacing previous years. Even worse, 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 insurance protection.
