In 2004, the US Department of Defense (DoD) established Directive 8570.1: Information Assurance Training, Certification and Workforce Management. It requires that all DoD information assurance technicians and managers are trained and certified to effectively defend DoD information, information systems and information infrastructures. DoD Directive 8570.01 Directive’s accompanying manual identifies the specific certifications mandated by the Directive’s enterprise-wide certification program.
The ultimate vision of the Directive is a sustained, professional IA workforce with the knowledge and skills to effectively prevent and respond to attacks against DoD information, information systems, and information infrastructures. This effort will enable DoD to put the right people with the right skills in the right place.

Current status of the 8570.01 Manual (DoD 8570.01-M)

The 8570 Manual has been approved by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and information Integration (ASD NII)/DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO). It is now mandatory for all DoD organizations to comply with its requirements. A copy of the current Manual (Change 1) is available on the DoD Publications website located at:
