Homeland Security

Homeland Security presents a complex, and ever-changing set of challenges to leaders at all levels of government. Terrorist attacks and natural disasters have the potential to touch the lives of all our citizens.

Effective responses to complex Homeland Security risks require integrated, collaborative strategies involving a diverse range of federal, state, local, tribal, private sector, civil sector, and even international partners. Homeland Security threats—be they acts of terrorism, natural disasters, infrastructure failures, or other crises—can occur with little or no warning and with unpredictable effects.

Booz Allen is able to serve the Department of Homeland Security and our other clients because we make their mission our mission. We therefore understand what is needed to react quickly to rapidly changing events. We offer continuous innovation and process improvements, while minimizing risks, and develop holistic integrated solutions.
