CMMC Assessment

CMMC Assessments

Keeping pace with information technology is crucial for company growth in the modern world and is often at the core of an organization’s goals. BTI is an authorized Certified Third-Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO) and a CYBER-AB Licensed Training Provider (LTP). Our objective is to help your company achieve measurable results that support your organization’s compliance goals.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) assessments typically involve a review of a company’s policies, procedures, technical controls, and documentation related to cybersecurity. Assessors evaluate your organization’s ability to protect sensitive data and systems, as well as your readiness to respond to cybersecurity incidents.

The CMMC Assessment Process (CAP) offers guidance for C3PAOs such as BTI to conduct official CMMC Level 2 Assessments of companies looking to become CMMC compliant.

The four phases of this process include:

  • Plan and prepare the assessment 
  • Conduct the assessment 
  • Report assessment results 
  • Close out plans of action (POAMs) and complete required assessment milestones.

  • Identify the people who can attest to and demonstrate compliance at both the policy and technical control levels

  • Construct the narrative to demonstrate compliance using documented artifacts, testing, and demonstration.

  • Plan the activities and schedule needed to get to being ready to be assessed.

Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

BTI succeeds in its mission when an organization is measurably better in a way that makes a real difference, is able to sustain the change for the better, knows that it is better, and is satisfied with the result.

Business Transformation Institute, Inc. (BTI) joined in partnership with Raytheon SAS to help us bring together many diverse business units and to stabilize and improve our performance.  Throughout the years we have worked together and achieved CMMI Maturity Level 5 while bringing together geographically and process diverse units. This has allowed us to have a much higher fluidity in our staff and contract execution locations without suffering performance degradation.  Also, BTI has led the way in choreographing novel appraisal methodologies that have significantly reduced the cost of maintaining CMMI certification and ensuring that the programs do not suffer “set-back” during the gap between certification renewals.

CNI was going to graduate from the federal government’s 8(a) program.  We had to be prepared to compete. Part of this is having good processes.  BTI helped us to do it.

I was fortunate to work with the BTI team on deploying the CMMI Level 2 practice at Western Union. There were a number of obstacles in garnering top-down changes and support everyone that the team was able to work through and make it successful.

Implementing CMMI practices and procedures in an unstructured environment is surely difficult, but the BTI team was able to see the big picture and also make sure that the details were correctly addressed and implemented.

I highly recommend the BTI team!
