Dept of defense directive 8570 | 8140

The Department of Defense (DoD) released the Cyberspace Workforce Management directive, DoD Directive (DoDD) 8140.01, on August 11, 2015. This directive is for personnel who support DoD intelligence, security and law enforcement missions in cyberspace. 8140.01 reissues and renumbers DoDD 8570.01 to update and expand established policies and assigned responsibilities for managing the DoD cyberspace workforce. The goal of this directive is to unify the overall cyberspace workforce and establish specific workforce elements , such as: cyberspace effects, cybersecurity and cyberspace information technology to align, manage and standardize cyberspace work roles, baseline qualifications and training requirements.

There are no specific training requirements for DoDD 8140.01 that have been released at this time. 8570.01-M is the Information Assurance (IA) Workforce Improvement Program manual, and it is still in effect. The DoD Approved Baseline Certifications table below provides a list of DoD-Approved Certifications aligned to each category and level of the IA workforce. Personnel performing IA functions must obtain one of the certifications required for their position's category or specialty and level.

Our Courses are specifically mapped for many of the Government Initiatives including:

NICE Framework: This framework recently developed by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) concentrates on developing a standardized lexicon and understanding of work related to cybersecurity. The end goal of the NICE Framework is to “educate, recruit, train, develop and retain a highly-qualified workforce.”

Cyberspace Workforce Management Directive: The Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program - 8570.01-M| 8140.01. This directive is aimed at establishing standards for IA personnel in terms of achieving specific IT and security certifications within a defined time frame. The certifications required, such as the A+, Network+, Security+, CASP, CISSP and CEH depend on the individual’s job functions.

Federal Information Security Modernization Act: The FISMA metrics leverage the Cybersecurity Framework as a standard for managing and reducing cybersecurity risks, and they are organized around the framework’s five functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. The Cybersecurity Framework, when used in conjunction with NIST’s Guide for Applying the Risk Management Framework to Federal Information Systems and associated standards and guidelines, provides agencies with a comprehensive structure for making more informed, risk-based decisions and managing cybersecurity risks across their enterprise.
