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 (cyberspace effects, cybersecurity and cyberspace information technology) to align, manage and standardize cyberspace work roles, baseline qualifications and training requirements.
No specific training requirements for DoDD 8140.01 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 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.
We can help you obtain and maintain certifications outlined in 8570.01-M.
DoDD 8140 (DoDD 8570) Requires:
- All personnel performing IAT and IAM functions must be certified.
- All personnel performing CND-SP and IASAE roles must be certified.
- All IA jobs will be categorized as ‘Technical’ or ‘Management’ Level I, II, or III, and to be qualified for those jobs, you must be certified.
