Personnel in an information assurance management role are responsible for the information assurance (IA) program of an Information System (IS) or major mission application within the Network Environment (NE).

IAT Level III personnel have mastery of the functions of both the IAT Level I and Level II positions. They collect data from a variety of Computer Network Defense (CND) tools (including data from approved information assurance (IA) tools to include intrusion detection system alerts, firewall and network traffic logs, and host system logs) to analyze events that occur within their environment.
Then they apply their analytical skills to this data and all compliance with relevant non-technical controls, such as physical security and configuration management, to perform an audit function for the Agent of the Certification Authority (ACA) or other government Information Assurance (IA) Manager for mitigation of risks and reporting to include report generation for certification and accreditation packages or Certification of Networthiness efforts. When in the Computer Network Defense
Auditor role (CND-AU) personnel perform assessments of systems and networks within the Network Environment (NE) or enclave and identify where those systems/networks deviate from acceptable configurations, enclave policy, or local policy.
