Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 8570 Training from New Horizons

In August of 2004, the US Department of Defense (DoD) signed Directive 8570, which requires every part-time or full-time military member or defense contractor with privileged access to a DoD information system to carry an approved certification for their particular job classification.

This measure ensures that those performing information assurance (security) measures have the necessary skills and knowledge to protect important information.

New hires must obtain appropriate baseline certifications within six months of being assigned to information assurance functions. New Horizons can help you achieve Directive 8570 certification requirements. We provide a complete and thorough training solution to help prepare you to pass Directive 8570 certification exams.

Our Directive 8570 solutions include:

  • Baseline certification training for those who perform Information Assurance functions
  • Continuous education to maintain certifications and further develop skills
  • Certification training for specific operating systems

The DoD 8140 model is based on the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) standard. This model will define categories as well as job titiles more clearly.

New Horizons has the training expertise and capability to thoroughly train Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and contractors to comply with the very specific certification requirements of Directive 8140. The new framework allows for many different classes, certifications, and formalized training to now qualify an individual as "certified" in that task.
