Training mapped to NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework

Infosec training maps directly to the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NIST Special Publication 800-181). This takes the guesswork out of employee development and empowers your team to take control of their careers, get a step ahead of cybercriminals and learn to build defenses to counter tomorrow’s threats.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is the difference between DoDD 8140 and 8570?
    • Department of Defense Directive 8570 was published in 2005 to provide guidance around the training, certification and management of DoD personnel and contractors. It was replaced in 2015 by DoDD 8140, which expanded upon 8570 to include the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework and provide a greater emphasis on hands-on training. However, there is no manual yet written for the practical implementation of 8140, so the 8570.01-M manual continues to be used.

  • What are the five levels of security clearance for DoD?
    • The DoD has five categories for Information Assurance workers:

      – Information Assurance Technician (IAT)
      – Information Assurance Manager (IAM)
      – Information Assurance System Architecture & Engineering (IASAE)
      – Cybersecurity Service Providers (CSSP)
      – Computing Environment (CE)

      The IAT, IAM and IASE categories include three progressive levels, with Level 1 covering the computing environment, Level 2 covering the network environment and Level 3 covering the enclave environment as well as advanced network and computing environments. The CSSP category is further broken down into five specializations: Analyst, Infrastructure Support, Incident Responder, Auditor and Manager. DoD 8570.01-M also requires a CE certification based on the operating system and related security tools and devices being used.

  • What are the DoD 8570 IAT certifications?
    • To meet DoD 8570.01-M Information Assurance Technician (IAT) requirements, you must earn one of the following certifications:

      – IAT I: A+, Network+, SSCP
      – IAT II: Security+, CySA+, CCNA Security, GICSP, GSEC, SSCP
      – IAT III: CASP+, CCNP Security, CISA, CISSP (or Associate), GCED, GCIH

  • What are the DoD 8570 IAM certifications?
    • To meet DoD 8570.01-M Information Assurance Manager (IAM) requirements, you must earn one of the following certifications:

      – IAM I: Security+, CAP, GSLC
      – IAM II: CASP+, CAP, CISM, CISSP (or Associate), GSLC
      – IAM III: CISM, CISSP (or Associate), GSLC

  • What are the DoD 8570 IASAE certifications?
    • To meet DoD 8570.01-M Information Assurance System Architecture & Engineering (IASAE) requirements, you must earn one of the following certifications:

      – IASAE I: CASP+, CISSP (or Associate), CSSLP
      – IASAE II: CASP+, CISSP (or Associate), CSSLP
      – IASAE III: CISSP-ISSAP, CISSP-ISSEP

  • What are the DoD CSSP certifications?
    • To meet DoD Cybersecurity Service Providers (CSSP) requirements, you must earn one of the following certifications:

      – CSSP Analyst: CySA+, CEH, CFR, GCIA, GCIH, GICSP, SCYBER
      – CSSP Infrastructure Support: CySA+, CEH, GICSP, SSCP
      – CSSP Incident Responder: CySA+, CEH, CFR, GCFA, GCIH, SCYBER
      – CSSP Auditor: CySA+, CEH, CISA, GSNA
      – CSSP Manager: CISM, CISSP-ISSMP

  • What are the DoD CE certifications?
    • According to 8570-01-M, “In addition to the IA baseline certification requirement for their level, IATs with privileged access must obtain appropriate Computing Environment (CE) certifications for the operating system(s) and/or security related tools/devices they support as required by their employing organization. If supporting multiple tools and devices, an IAT should obtain CE certifications for all the tools and devices they are supporting. At a minimum the IAT should obtain a certification for the tool or device he or she spends the most time supporting. For example, if an IAT is spending most of his or her time supporting security functions on a CISCO router, the IAT should obtain a CE certification for that equipment.”

  • What is the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework?
    • The NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NIST Special Publication 800-181) is used to help categorize cybersecurity work and job duties across the public, private and academic sectors. Infosec’s IT and security training is mapped to the NICE Framework’s seven categories of common cybersecurity functions: securely provision, operate and maintain, oversee and govern, protect and defend, analyze, collect and operate, and investigate.
