Join us for a live event with Blake Percival, author of Holding On To Integrity and Paying the Price-A Whistleblower's Story. From 2001-2011, Blake worked for USIS, also known as US Investigations Services, where he rose through the ranks to the position of Director. USIS was a company contracted by the government to conduct National Security Clearance Background Investigations on prospective and current Federal employees. Blake became a Whistleblower in 7/2011 when he exposed the USIS was billing the U.S. Government for background investigations that allegedly had not been properly reviewed. Among the clearances allegedly not properly reviewed by USIS were NSA Leaker Edward Snowden and Aaron Alexis who shot and killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard. For several years, Blake was not allowed to talk about the case. Find out more about his experiences through this live event!
