Redbranch Law and Consulting

Specializing in Homeland Security and Privacy Solutions

Red BranchConsulting provides comprehensive strategic and legal advice to companies, individuals, and governments seeking homeland security, information policy and data privacy solutions for the challenges they face. We offer an understanding of the strategic vision that animates American homeland security policy, both at the Department of Homeland Security and throughout the United States government. Few others have as complete an understanding of the thought process that undergirds American homeland security policy.

This means that we understand how the United States provides end to end border security to prevent them malefide actors or goods from entering the country.  It means we understand the difficulties and challenges that arise from developing those intelligence collection and border security systems and the necessity for cooperation with foreign partners who sometimes have significantly different expectations and needs. It means we understand the privacy concerns that arise from the collection of personally identifiable information about individuals traveling to the United States and the solutions that have been put in place to adequately protect privacy while fostering security.

It also means that we at Red Branch understand how the United States government has gone about the job of protecting critical infrastructure, most of which is in the hands of the private sector. We understand how systems of regulation and assurance can be used to incentivize the development and deployment of vulnerability-protecting technologies and we understand the impact of these governmental activities on the private sector’s bottom-line.

We also understand how the United States government responds to emergencies, both man-made and natural, when protective measures fail. We understand the interaction between the federal government and state and local responders. We understand the challenges that arise from this federated response system and how the United States collectively is moving to mitigate those challenges.

In short, few in the United States know as much about the homeland security paradigm as we do at Red Branch Law & Consulting. We know how the system works and we know the players within the system. We know what foreign concerns are and we understand how the rest of the world is slowly migrating towards a homeland security model similar, at least to some degree, on that developed in the United States. There are many opportunities in the changing world and many pitfalls. We can guide corporations and foreign governments as they navigate these treacherous waters.
