DOD Directive 8570.1

The US Department of Defense established Directive 8570.1 in 2004 as part of a measure to protect against emerging security threats. In order to effectively prevent and respond to attacks against DoD information, information systems and information infrastructures, the DoD has recognized the critical need for highly-qualified, experienced information assurance personnel. The purpose of Directive 8570.1 is to ensure that information technology workers have the necessary knowledge and expertise to perform their jobs properly. This is measured by a series of certification requirements based on specific job roles and levels.
