WASHINGTON – Command Consulting Group, LLC announced today the expansion of its Business Advisory Services practice and team with the addition of Jennifer Arangio, former Senior Counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security.
Arangio joins Command as a Principal and will manage Command’s existing Business Advisory Service and Transportation Security practice areas, in addition to offering clients new insight gained from years in the midst of key Capitol Hill policy and funding battles related to securing the homeland. Arangio brings an extensive background and invaluable experience to Command.
“I am very pleased to welcome Jennifer today to our growing team,” Command founding partner W. Ralph Basham said. “We are excited to offer our clients her years of private practice and legislative experience, expertise and insight on homeland security policy matters ranging from cybersecurity to aviation security, and deep relationships with policy makers, industry, and agency officials.”
During her eight years on Capitol Hill, Arangio served on the House Homeland Security Committee, advising Chairmen Peter T. King and Michael T. McCaul and Committee members on diverse matters such as: cybersecurity, critical infrastructure, privacy, transportation, budget, appropriations, financial services issues, including CFIUS, and national security programs. She also worked on multiple pieces of legislation and was the lead counsel on the Committee’s signature Cybersecurity legislation, which was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President in December 2014.
Arangio also worked closely with industry leaders, trade organizations, associations, and think tanks on legislative policy and regulatory matters. She was actively involved in the Congress’ work on aviation security programs, involving risk based screening, as well as data privacy issues and communicating to stakeholders on these topics.
“Jennifer knows the legislative and public policy landscape on so many of today’s hot button security issues ranging from cyber breaches to data privacy to aviation security,” Command founding partner Thad Bingel said. “She will offer our current and prospective clients a valuable and fresh perspective on the intersection of security requirements, agency programs and legislative action gained from a wealth of hands on experience.”
Hailing from New York, Arangio previously worked as Managing Partner of McCabe, Flynn & Arangio, LLP, a boutique law firm with a corporate and securities regulation practice. In 2003, she ran for New York City Council and won her primary election. Arangio graduated cum laude from New York Law School and received a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs from The George Washington University.
During IDGA’s Border Management Summit, Chief Ron Colburn hosted a workshop presenting the U.S. Border Patrol’s strategic goals and missions from 2012-2016 taken from Border Patrol’s published trilogy of articles, Holding the Line in the 21st Century.
In his discussion, Chief Colburn focused on the importance of manpower, technology, and infrastructure in ensuring efficient Border Patrol operations. Citing recent developments of unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S. border, Chief Colburn emphasized the importance of building cross-border relationships to facilitate the transfer of information and safely conduct daily business. He also singled out biometrics as filling an important need for law enforcement agencies and encouraged widespread use of biometric technologies and systems in the future.
Altogether, Chief Colburn’s presentation covered critical elements of border protection and allowed attendees of the Summit to learn from a seasoned expert on border issues.
