Directive 8570 IT Security Regulations
What is Directive 8570.1?
Directive 8570 is a policy from the Department of Defense's Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program that requires any 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 via annual metrics reporting of their workforce.
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.
