 Directive 8140

As the transition from Directive 8570 to Directive 8140 begins, New Horizons Learning Group's dedicated government team is here to guide you along the way. 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 titles more clearly.

New Horizons Learning Group has the training expertise and capability to thoroughly train Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and on 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.

 Directive 8570

What is Directive 8570?

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.
