SECNAVINST 5239.20A, Significantly Revises DON Cyber/IT Workforce Policy
By DON CIO - March 4, 2016
SECNAVINST 5239.20A, DON Cyber IT and CSWF Management and Qualification updates Department of Navy (DON) workforce policy and responsibilities to support the DON's transition from the current IA Workforce Program to the new DoD Cyberspace Workforce structure. The new structure is outlined in DoD Directive 8140.01, Cyberspace Workforce Management (11 Aug 2015).

SECNAVINST 5239.20A includes significant changes. Specifically, it establishes two workforce categories: Cyber IT and Cybersecurity, providing the means to determine training, education, credentialing and qualification requirements of the Cyber IT workforce separately from those of the Cybersecurity workforce. In particular, it provides the means to separate the level of cybersecurity training and credentialing requirements of the Cyber IT (to include Platform IT) personnel from the more extensive cybersecurity qualification requirements of the cybersecurity workforce.
