T SI Achieves CMMC Level 3 Compliance Readiness Review

Foxboro, MA, May 27, 2021:

Technical Support International (TSI), an IT Managed Services Provider (MSP) and Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), has successfully undergone a CMMC Level 3 Readiness Review conducted by registered C3PAO C.H. Guernsey & Company (Guernsey) and was overseen by Timothy Fawcett, a registered Provisional Assessor.

The CMMC Level 3 Readiness Review demonstrated TSI’s ability to produce the required objective evidence to confirm our ability to fulfill CMMC Level 3 technical components, practices and processes that would be required to recommend a CMMC Level 3 certification.

"After performing the CMMC Level 3 Readiness Review for TSI, I believe that they are well prepared to pass a CMMC Level 3 Assessment, based on current guidance. Their program design was logical, well documented, and made it easy to evaluate from an assessor’s perspective. It was a pleasure working with their team whos’ expertise and commitment was apparent."

- Timothy Fawcett, CISSP, CISA. Guernsey

As a CMMC-AB Registered Provider Organization (RPO), TSI assists DIB contractors achieve their NIST 800-171 and CMMC objectives to fulfill their contractual requirements with the DoD through their Primes. Although TSI is not a DoD contractor, it is highly anticipated that IT Managed Service Providers will soon need to adhere to these stringent compliance requirements which drove TSI to verify the maturity level of their CMMC security program, processes and practices.

"It was rewarding to learn the hard work, attention to detail, costs and many hours spent preparing for the review were validated in such grand fashion. I am very proud of our team of security engineers and compliance experts who contributed their unique skill sets and expertise to this effort. Our goal was to develop a winning CMMC Level-3 strategy that can withstand CMMC Level-3 scrutiny, and that we can share with our valued Clients."

- John Bermingham, CISSP. TSI
