DoDD 8570/8140 Baseline Certifications

The Department of Defense Directive (DoDD) 8570 was a formal policy enacted by the federal government that stipulated the criteria for training and certifying individuals who had access to specific information assurance tasks within the Department of Defense.

This directive was subsequently replaced in 2015 by DoDD 8140, which currently serves as the definitive policy, rendering the previous DoDD 8570 obsolete. The 8570 directive established the regulations and responsibilities of the DoD information assurance operations, outlining the necessary training, certification prerequisites, and related matters. The formation of the 8140 directive was influenced by the standards set by the National Institute of Standard and Technology and the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education.

Consequently, contractors, active-duty personnel, civilian staff, and other parties engaged with the Department of Defense’s information systems are mandated to gain certification in the respective courses, dependent on their job role and function.

ITDojo offers a majority of the required certification courses via various formats, including instructor-led classroom teaching and live, instructor-led virtual classes. Our expert instructors, located across the United States and internationally, use optimal teaching strategies to ensure students grasp, retain, and are well-prepared for their certification exams, aiming to help them pass on their first try. We can furnish exam vouchers and exam prep both during and after the course, with a goal to facilitate the quickest possible certification for the student. If you’re interested in pursuing any of these certification courses, please reach out to us at 757-216-3656 or drop us an email at info@itdojo.com.
