Our Journey

BAI was founded in 1974 as a software consulting firm but has evolved since then into an organization specializing in providing RMF training and consulting services. We are specialists in assessment and authorization (A&A) of DoD and federal information systems and support a nationwide clientele of government programs, contractors, product developers and service providers.

Over the last 40+ years, we have developed and delivered numerous training courses in areas such as office automation, software quality assurance, and cybersecurity. We have witnessed dramatic changes in the field of information technology and have observed that while systems have become increasingly complex and interdependent, and threats to the security of our information technology have grown exponentially, most organizations continue to respond to cybersecurity risks by using measures designed to meet yesterday’s threats. BAI’s transformation into the boutique information security training and consulting organization we are today was in response to this challenge.

BAI training staff, instructional designers, and consultants are the world’s leading subject matter experts in the application of DoD and Federal government cybersecurity policy and compliance. It is our goal to stay aligned with the current cybersecurity landscape providing our customers the most accurate and relevant knowledge in a real-time capacity reflecting current DoD and Federal cybersecurity guidance.  In addition to decades of real-world cybersecurity experience in government service and a contractor capacity, BAI staff qualifications include: Ph.D, MBA, MIS, MS, CISSP, CAP, NQV3, CRISC, CISA, RDRP, PMP, ITIL-F, CISA, FITSP-M, FITSP-D, MCSE, and MCT.

It is BAI’s core goal to deliver its customers the cybersecurity training they need in the most efficient means possible allowing students to return to work with the confidence and skills necessary to complete their RMF responsibilities

Why are we focused on providing RMF Training?

We were creators of training programs for DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). These have now been completely superseded to reflect the unification of information security and risk management practices by the Risk Management Framework (RMF). We recognize the market need for RMF training to enhance our nation’s cybersecurity posture.

How is our training delivered?

We have helped thousands of military personnel, civilian government employees, and contractor personnel complete a variety of training programs using multiple delivery modalities.
