 What is DoDD 8140 Mandate?

The updated DoD 8140 Qualification Program, implemented in 2023, provides a comprehensive approach to managing cyber workforce talent. It establishes baseline standards for qualifications that directly support operational needs and workforce readiness.  It expands on 8570 to leverage the Defense Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (DCWF), which draws from the original National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF) and the DoD Joint Cyberspace Training and Certification Standards (JCT&CS).  The DoD 8570.01 – DoD is transitioning from the IA workforce to the Cybersecurity Workforce. 

With the expansion of the DoD 8140 Cyber Workforce Qualification Program, around 225,000 military, civilian, and contractor positions will have foundational and residential qualification criteria for each DoD Cyber Workforce Framework role. These roles align with our GIAC cybersecurity focus areas, including Cyber Defense, Forensics, Management, Cloud, and Offensive Operations, offering options that equip individuals with real-world skills and testing. This strategy and program aim to enable the DoD to develop and deploy an agile, capable, and ready cyber workforce.
