DoD 8570: How the Military Handles Data and Why It Matters

Several years ago, the DoD passed a regulation, DoD 8570, which stated that all Information Assurance (IA) personnel were required by law to be compliant. Certification is necessary to work with this data, whether that be DoD staff, contractors, or partners.  

Will DoD 8140 Replace DoD 8570?

DoD 8570, the Cybersecurity Information Assurance Workforce Development Program, will soon be replaced by DoD 8140. DoD 8570 determines which cybersecurity certifications are required for Information Assurance positions in a United State's government organization.
