IP3 and DoD Directive 8570.1

The Department of Defense Directive 8570.1 made it mandatory for all the military personnel, full-time, part time, contractors, or foreign employees with privileged access to DoD information system, to obtain a commercial information system security credential accredited by ANSI or equivalent authorized body under ISO/IEC Standard 17024:2003. The directive also requires the employees to upgrade or maintain their professional certification every year.

Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) will be a right choice for information assurance managers who are required by the mandate to receive a more comprehensive certification than technical personal. CISSP meets the requirements needed for managers categorized as T3, M1, M2, or M3.


The CISSP was the first information security credential accredited by ANSI to ISO/IEC Standard 17024:2003 and, as such, has led industry acceptance of this global standard and its stringent requirements and inspired other information security certification providers to follow suit. There is no risk in obtaining the CISSP, as it already meets the ISO/IEC standard 17024 accreditation qualifications—an accreditation that was renewed (required annually) by ANSI in July 2005. More than 40,000 information security professionals in more than 110 countries have already made this decision.
