Announcing BRIC Shield
Today, the Boston Regional Intelligence Center (BRIC) is launching – BRIC SHIELD — a new security and information sharing partnership between the BRIC and our public and private sector security stakeholders.
BRIC SHIELD is a members only program open to public safety, emergency management, private security and business continuity professionals.
Through our secure web portal SHIELD members will have access to the latest intelligence and analysis on homeland security and crime in the Metro Boston Region. SHIELD members will also find information on upcoming events, access our resource library, and stay informed of training opportunities. In turn, we ask our SHIELD members to share relevant information and assist in our efforts to keep the Metro Boston Region safe.
Additionally, we are leveraging a secure mobile application to issue alerts and notifications of public safety information to our BRIC SHIELD members. The BRIC SHIELD App provides a secure information exchange environment where our partners can be notified in near real-time of critical information. The BRIC SHIELD app is free and available on the AppStore and GooglePlay to registered members of the BRIC SHIELD program.
Watch this brief video showcasing the new BRIC SHIELD website as well as instructions on how to use and download the BRIC SHIELD app.
We will use the BRIC SHIELD App to provide you with important information related to the 2016 Boston Marathon on April 18th, as well as other major events within the Metro Boston Region, so be sure to register to stay informed!
Please Note: As of June 1, 2016, we will no longer issue intelligence bulletins and situational awareness alerts via email to our public safety, emergency management, private security and business continuity partners. This transition to the new BRIC SHIELD web portal and application is being made to improve the user experience of our partners and improve information security.
As a current member of the BRIC’s email distribution list, we ask that you register your information on the BRIC SHIELD web portal to gain access to our web portal and secure app to continue receiving intelligence from the BRIC.
Thank you for the work you do to make your organizations and our communities safer, and for your continued participation and support of the BRIC
Director, Boston Regional Intelligence Center
