What is Directive 8570?

The United States of America Department of Defense issued Directive 8570 in 2004 to mandate baseline certifications for all Information Assurance “IA” positions. In February of 2010, this directive was enhanced to include the Certified Ethical Hacker across the Computer Network Defense Categories “CND”.

8570 classifies personnel in the following Main Categories:
  • Technician
  • Manager
  • Computer Network Defender Service Provider
  • System Architect and Engineer

Furthermore, categories are subdivided into individual job roles relating to specific functional requirements. The certified ethical hacker covers 4 out of 5 positions in the Computer Network Defense Category.

CEH is a part of:
  • CND Analyst
  • CND Infrastructure Support
  • CND Incident Responder
  • CND Auditor

National Security Agency (NSA), and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS)

Admission Policy

EC-Council requires that potential students have at least a high school diploma and are over 18 years old. (EC-Council does not admit students who are of compulsory school age or who are concurrently attending an elementary or secondary school.)

The following are the requirements and recommendations for each of our courses:

Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO)

In addition to EC-Council accredited training, candidates interested in earning the CCISO certification must also prove they have the required years of experience to qualify as a CCISO.

Experience is verified via the Exam Eligibility Application, which must be filled out and returned before a CCISO Exam Voucher can be distributed.

The experience requirements for CCISO include 5 years of verified experience in at least 3 of the 5 CCISO Domains in addition to accredited training. Candidates who have 5 years of experience in all 5 of the CCISO Domains are eligible to sit for the exam without taking training.

If a candidate’s experience and background does not qualify for the CCISO Exam, the candidate is still eligible to attend training. However, at the end of the course, rather than taking the CCISO exam the candidate will take the EC-Council Information Security Manager (EISM) Exam. The EISM exam leads to the EISM certification. EISMs are eligible for discounts on the CCISO Exam once they accrue the required years of experience to sit for the full CCISO Exam.

Credit toward experience is granted in certain domains in the case of industry-accepted, professional certifications and higher degrees in information security as shown below. Between certification and training waivers, applicants can only waive 3 years of experience for each domain.
