DOD 8570

What is the DOD 8570 chart and why does it matter in your CyberSecurity career? Many jobs have a legal rule they have to follow: If you are in a job where you might have access to sensitive government data, then you are required to have at least one of the certifications listed for that role (see chart). Even businesses who do no business with the government are now often requiring these in similar roles.
