GIAC understands the growing threat facing the modern global enterprise and the unique cyber operations challenges to global government organizations. Unlike civilian organizations, governmental cyberinfrastructure faces its own unique set of cyber operations challenges. As a recognized partner on global frameworks and defensive directives, and as the leading organization in cybersecurity certifications, GIAC certifications prove that government professionals have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to defend systems, networks, and infrastructure.

DoDD 8570 provides guidance and procedures for the training, certification, and management of all government employees who conduct information assurance functions in assigned duty positions.
DoDD 8140 is now a larger initiative that will ultimately include a larger framework featuring more knowledge, abilities, and skills subsets, allowing for a broader compliance metric.
Information on DoDD 8140 is forthcoming Winter 2021.
SANS and GIAC have partnered with the National Security Workforce to place over 40+ cyber security courses and affiliated GIAC certifications within an easy to read framework (commonly known as the NICE Framework).
