MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Booz Allen has issued the following statement on its actions
following the arrest of a former employee, from Craig Veith, Vice
President, External Relations:
"We fired Harold Martin as soon as we learned of his arrest, and we have
been fully cooperating with the FBI's investigation and reviewing this
matter. Because we are determined to learn from this incident and look
more broadly at our processes and practices, we have taken an additional
step of asking former FBI Director Robert Mueller to conduct an external
review of the firm's security, personnel, and management processes and
practices. Director Mueller's review began Oct. 19, 2016.
"We take the trust clients place in us seriously and are proud to
support our country's important national security missions. We are
committed to doing our part to detect potential insider threats, which
are complex and constantly evolving. Director Mueller has extensive
experience in these areas, as well as an unparalleled reputation for
integrity. We are confident that he will conduct a fair, objective, and
"This external review is the right thing to do: We are an organization
that prides itself on constant learning. If there are areas where Booz
Allen can improve, we will address them."
