Military Solutions from New Horizons

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.
