DoD 8140 Training Solutions

The U.S. technology infrastructure is vulnerable to attacks. As more smart devices come onto the market with the ability to connect to other devices and networks, vulnerabilities to cyber attacks from bad actors are amplified.

Military installations are high-value targets for  cyber criminals.  The military is tasked with defending against cyber threats to both government and private sector networks.  Additionally, offensive strategies are constructed to ensure U.S. military, government, and civilian data and networks are well protected from outside attacks.

These challenges must be met by capable, well-trained personnel that can adapt quickly in the ever-changing threat landscape.

In August, 2016, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) took a major step forward in the efforts to protect American networks. They produced a workforce framework that pinpointed specific training needed to combat the rapidly growing threats developing in the cyber domain.

First, they looked at the compliance framework developed by the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Initiative for Cyber Education (NICE).  Then, they adopted many of the same recommendations with special attention on ensuring that the proper level of education would be given to their cyber workforce.  Finally, they released DOD Directive 8140.01 which mandates the implementation of this framework.

NICE identifies essential knowledge, skills, and abilities for critical job roles. It also emphasizes hands-on experience and training.

DOD Directive 8140 includes NICE and other approaches to meet training and certification requirements for a cyber workforce.

Mile2 has mapped several courses to the 8140 directive to guide your organization in selecting the best training.  Our courses are also mapped to the NICE framework established by the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST).
