DoD Directive 8570.01 provides the basis for an enterprise-wide solution to train, certify, and manage the DoD Information Assurance (IA) workforce. The policy requires Information Assurance technicians and managers to be trained and certified to a DoD baseline requirement. The Directive’s accompanying manual identifies the specific certifications mandated by the Directive’s enterprise-wide certification program.

Information Assurance Technical (IAT) and IA Management (IAM) personnel must be fully trained and certified to baseline requirements to perform their IA duties. DoD 8570.01-M defines IAT workforce members as anyone with privileged information system access performing IA functions. IAM personnel perform management functions for DoD operational systems described in the Manual.

The training, certification, and workforce management requirements of DoD 8570.01-M apply to all members of the DoD IA workforce including military, civilians, local nationals, Non-appropriated fund (NAF) personnel, and contractors. The requirements apply whether the duties are performed full-time, part-time, or as an embedded duty.

8140 has a more expanded set of roles defined, sub-categorizing things further to get specific about who needs what type of certification.

At the time of this writing, DoD Directive 8140 continues to use 8570.01-m to identify the requirements. DoD 8570.01-m is still in use and actively managed by the DoD

The above table provides a list of DoD approved IA baseline 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, category/specialty and level to fulfill the IA baseline certification requirement. Most IA levels within a category or specialty have more than one approved certification and a certification may apply to more than one level.

An individual needs to obtain only one of the “approved certifications”; for his or her IA category or specialty and level to meet the minimum requirement. For example, an individual in an IAT Level II position could obtain any one of the four certifications listed in the IAT Level II cell.

Higher level IAT and IAM certifications satisfy lower level requirements. Certifications listed in Level II or III cells can be used to qualify for Level I. However, Level I certifications cannot be used for Level II or III unless the certification is also listed in the Level II or III cell.

For example:

  • The A+ or Network+ certification qualify only for Technical Level I and cannot be used for Technical Level II positions.
  • The System Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification qualifies for both Technical Level I and Technical Level II. If the individual holding this certification moved from an IAT Level I to an IAT Level II position, he or she would not have to take a new certification.Higher level CSSP and IASAE certifications do not satisfy lower level requirements*1. This certification is equivalent to the CND-SP certification cited in the DoD 8570.01-M. The name was changed from CND-SP to CCSP to reflect current terminology in the DoD Instruction 8530.01 “Cybersecurity Activities Support to DoD Information Network Operations.
