What is DoD 8570?

The DoD 8570.1-M ("8570") Directive is also known as the Information Assurance (IA) Workforce Improvement Program. The Department of Defense (DoD) passed a regulation stating that all IA personnel must become compliant with the mandated IT and Security certification standards within a certain time frame. There are various levels of compliance based on the level of job function. In today’s environment of emerging security threats, the DoD recognizes the critical need for highly-qualified, experienced information assurance personnel. To ensure a knowledgeable and skilled workforce necessary steps to develop a directive that involves the credentialing and continuing education of all DoD employees with privileged access to DoD information systems.  8570 requires every full and part-time military service member, defense contractor, and civilian with privileged access to a DoD system, regardless of job series or occupational specialty, to obtain a commercial certification credential that has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The most common cybersecurity certifications include CompTIA Security+, CISSP, CAP, CySA+, and CEH.  

Note: DoD 8570 is migrating to DoD 8140. For more information, see our blog post Will DoD 8140 Replace DoD 8570?
