Active Assailant

The active assailant team at GAWS of London understands that fast-evolving events are unpredictable and impactful; the consequences of which can be far reaching.

We closely monitor the shifting landscape to ensure this progressive product responds to the event while providing the support to restore business, ensuring the best possible insurance protection for people and organisations in response to the growing threat of attack.

With methods, targets and motives ever changing, attacks are hard to predict and even harder to protect against. 

At GAWS of London our team implements creative insurance solutions to ensure robustness and resilience to such events and to provide support in rehabilitation and recovery.

Through innovative product implementation, we can fill the gaps often found in traditional insurance products whilst not limiting coverage by requiring the customary triggers of a terrorism policy.  Our aim is to ensure clients minimise their exposure to the risks emanating from active assailant attacks and can recuperate quickly if an incident occurs.
