Navy to Introduce New Cyber Certification Process

Navy CIO, Terry Halvorsen

The Navy will issue certifications at the end of each information technology training program to ensure the department’s cybersecurity workers are up to speed, Federal News Radio reports.

A recent General Accountability Office report concluded federal agencies do not have a standardized training program for their cyber workforces.

Navy Chief Information Officer Terry Halvorsen issued a memorandum in February requiring all cybersecurity workers to follow a certification process.

The model follows the same certification process used by commercial employees, according to Federal News Radio.

The commercial certification curriculum is expected to be added to the standard military training.
