The Brosnan Intelligence Center (BIC) was established in 2016. The BIC develops, integrates and synchronizes intelligence data, solutions and technology to equip Brosnan Security Officers with the necessary information and tools to successfully secure and protect our client’s assets and properties. The BIC is monitored 24/7 and overseen by a former NYPD Chief of Intelligence and a former Counterterrorism Commander.

• Utilizing powerful cutting-edge technology, the BIC instantly analyzes thousands of streams of data; social media including public tweets; and has multiple sources tracking police, fire and ambulance scanners in the tri-state area. Analysts quickly transmit alerts to the phones of our SmartGuards™ in the field. Alerts include breaking news and actionable intelligence on the following:

– ACTIVE SHOOTERS (location, description, direction of flight)
– TERRORIST EVENTS (attempted Times Square bombing, etc.)
– MAJOR CRIMES (bank robberies, burglaries, car theft rings, etc.)
– PUBLIC PROTESTS (planned or unplanned; stationary or moving; peaceful or violent, etc.)
– SUSPICIOUS PACKAGES (bomb threats, reported unattended packages, etc.)
– FIRES, FLOODS AND OTHER DEVELOPING INCIDENTS (a range of incidents that can impact a SmartGuard’s decisions and post orders.)

  • “I toured Brosnan Risk Consultants’ Intelligence Center in May to review their value-added support to their on-site security teams. I was very impressed by the new technology and tools they are providing their on-site security teams and support to their clients. In short, Brosnan is providing 24/7 intelligence alerts to their guard force’s smart phones regarding major crimes, active shooters, social protests, fires, floods and other unfolding incidents. Brosnan’s analysts assess numerous streams of intelligence including public tweets and push to their guard’s phones, often critical minutes before the news stations. I expressed how far they have surpassed other security management firms with their tools and technology. Brosnan is more than a GQ looking security team. They provide substance to security teams that service the class “A” assets that we manage and address real world challenges we face in our day to day work lives. I was so impressed with their presentation, that I extended an invitation for Brosnan Risk Consultants to present to our national leadership team meeting in Tampa, Florida. Our national leadership team were wowed. They will be reaching out to Brosnan to provide pricing or perform the same presentation, in their market, with the owners we represent.”Dennis J.
