Assessment Procedures for Security and Privacy Controls
Initial Public Draft: March 2019
Final Public Draft: June 2019

There are 6 major objectives for this update—
-Making the security and privacy controls more outcome-based by changing the structure of the controls;

-Fully integrating the privacy controls into the security control catalog creating a consolidated and unified set of controls for information systems and organizations

-Separating the control selection process from the actual controls: systems engineers, software developers, enterprise architects; and mission/business owners

-Promoting integration with different risk management and cybersecurity approaches and lexicons, including the Cybersecurity Framework

-Clarifying the relationship between security and privacy to improve the selection of controls necessary to address the full scope of security and privacy risks

IT Security Career Risk Management Framework

So you want to get into Information Technology? Well what do you want to do in IT because there are many different branches of it. I would suggest going into IT security, specifically, Risk Management Framework. It is a very specialized field.

You will need to know the fundamental of IT security. The basics on what goes into securing important data and their hardware. You will also need to have at least a little knowledge of technology and its history. You will need to know a LOT about NIST SP 800-37, “Guide for Applying the Risk Management Framework to Federal Information Systems”. You will need to dive into NIST SP 800-53, “Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations”.

Since not many people want to do this work, or even know about it, there is not much competition. They are always looking for qualified people to do it. What you will need is a 4 year degree (preferably in something technical), an IT certification in security (Security+, ISC2 CAP, CISSP, CASP, CISM,CISA) and a lot of knowledge on NIST 800-37.

 

dodd 8140 cyberspace workforce management

What is the DoD Directive 8140?
DoD 8140, Cyberspace workforce will supersede DoD 8570 as the guide for selecting the personnel with the correct certifications, skills and experience.

Where is the DoDD 8140.01, Cyberworkforce going?
8140 manual may mirror an ongoing initiative that has a lot more categories. Those high level categories would be under a National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) framework:

Security Provision, Maintain and Operate, Protect & Defend, Analyze, operate & collect, Oversight & Development and Investigate.

These categories are broken down further into a sum total of 31 tasks. It was supposed to be released in 2013, but there is actually no telling when it will come out.
