8570.01M Update: CSA+ Officially Added To Baseline Certs

When CompTIA’s Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) certification was released in February 2017, many who follow the Department of Defense Directive 8570.01M had the same question. “Will the CSA+ certification become an 8570 cert?” We now know that YES, with the October 8570.01M update; CSA+ is now an official baseline certification for the IA Workforce Improvement Program (DoD 8570).

While this post will reference DoD 8570.01M, which is the acting DoD directive until the manual for 8140 is completed. If you aren’t familiar with the DoD 8570.01M or DoD 8140 mandates, take a minute to read through this blog post before reading any further: DoD 8140: How Does It Affect You?

8570.01M Update

On October 13, 2017, the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) certification was officially added to the 8570 baseline certification guide. The certification is considered one of the baseline certifications for 5 different levels and job roles.  In the picture below you will see all the approved baseline certifications to include CSA+, which has been highlighted so that you can find where the certification has been added more easily. You can also view the official certification chart on the IASE website.

8570.01M update

As you can see, the levels and job roles that the CSA+ certification has been added to since the 8570.01M update has taken place are all roles in which an individual must have a good amount of knowledge and skills as a security analyst.

The CSA+ certification is an intermediate level certification that builds on baseline skills and knowledge. Which is why CSA+ is not found in any of the first levels of baseline certifications on the 8570.01M update.
