Once we get the lay of the land, we lead the charge and hold the line. We don’t just strategize and problem-solve, we collaborate, mediate and innovate to ensure we continue to deliver the solutions and skills your business needs to remain secure and successful.



RedLegg’s approach to cybersecurity consultancy is so unique, we had to name it ourselves. ARMEE (Assess, Remediate, Monitor, Educate, Enforce) applies a holistic, lifecycle approach to risk management.

Essentially – we get to know you, identify areas of risk and improvement, implement result-oriented solutions, monitor ongoing activity, and grow a long-lasting relationship.

The term “redleg” (one g) was coined during the American Civil War and referred to the two-inch scarlet stripe that was sewn onto each pant leg of a Field Artillery soldier’s uniform.

Artillery soldiers, with a mission to “destroy, defeat, or disrupt the enemy with integrated fires,” were considered the elite back then because of the extent of casualties they inflicted on the battlefield. The Field Artillery killed the lion’s share of the enemy (about 75%), so they became known collectively as the King of Battle, distinguishing themselves again in both World Wars.

Redlegs were recently deployed as infantry during the Iraq War and the War in Afghanistan.

Lynn-Weddle-National-GuardLynn Weddle founded RedLegg in 2008. He served in the Field Artillery unit of the National Guard for most of his life, and “RedLeg” (one g) was a nickname and a password he often used (not anymore, of course). Growing up in a military family in the small town of Thayer, IL, Lynn spent his summers picking beans and hanging out with friends. He was always interested in finance, good with numbers, and loved adventures and taking risks. With a career in information data protection spanning over 20 years, he originally received his degree in finance from Southern Illinois University.
