DoD 8570 training from QuickStart

DoD 8570


The Department of Defense (DoD) recognized the need for a workforce with a common understanding of the concepts, principles, and applications of Information Assurance (IA) for each category, specialty, level, and function to enhance protection and availability of DoD information, information systems, and networks. Through Directive 8570.1 the DoD has taken the necessary steps that involves establishing baseline technical and management IA skills among personnel performing IA functions across the DoD enterprise through training and certification of all DoD employees and contractors with privileged access to DoD information systems.

Signed on August 15, 2004, Directive DoD 8570.1 requires every full-time and part-time military service member, defense contractor, civilian and foreign employee 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). These individuals are required to carry an approved certification for their particular job classification before the end of 2008. Training and certification from QuickStart Intelligence can be used as credit toward meeting these requirements set in Directive 8570.1.

DoD Directive 8570.1 requires:

  • 100% of the IA professionals in DoD and DoD contractors must be certified within the next 3 years
  • 40% must be certified by the end of 2008
  • All IA jobs will be categorized as 'Technical' or 'Management' Level I, II, or III, and to be qualified for those jobs, you must be certified.
