replacing DoD Directive 8570

 

DoDD 8570 is being replaced by DoDD 8140. Until DoDD 8140 manuals are finalized, DoD personnel are required to stay DoDD 8570 compliant. As with its predecessor 8570, the new DoD Directive 8140 is split into main categories, with tasks or special areas assigned underneath. This hierarchy helps better define jobs, skills, training, and focus areas. These seven main categories have been borrowed from the NICE Framework, however, Directive 8140 prescribes its own classes/certifications to fulfill the KSAs of the special areas and tasks. The main categories are Security Provision, Operate and Maintain, Protect and Defend, Analyze, Operate and Collect, Oversight and Development, and Investigate. The new framework allows for many different classes, certifications, and formalized training to now qualify an individual as "certified" in a specific task. Having different avenues of training allows individuals to obtain inexpensive training and still be qualified in a task. This list changes often as new classes are submitted.
