8570 Compliance Training


DoD 8570 Directive

In August, 2004 the US Department of Defense's (DoD) Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program signed Directive 8570 which requires every part-time or full-time DoD employee and any contractor working with the DoD to possess certain Information Assurance training and certifications. The Directive makes certain that Information Assurance personnel meet training and certification requirements related to their IT security job functions.

The goal of the Directive is a uniform, professional Information Assurance workforce with the knowledge and skills to effectively prevent and respond to attacks against DoD information, information systems and information infrastructures. The efforts of this program and Directive 8570 will enable the DoD to properly place Information Assurance personnel according to their skills.

Department of Defense Directive 8570 (DoDD 8570) provides guidance and procedures for the training, certification and management of all government employees who conduct Information Assurance functions in assigned duty positions. These individuals are required to carry an approved certification for their particular job classification. Training is required for all personnel that have access to any information system and preform any security function with the DoD.  The Directive authorizes units to request funds to train current personnel to the level needed to perform their job functions.
