What is a CAGE code? Why is it needed for Industry security professionals not affiliated with DoD to register for certification testing?

The Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code is a five-character ID number used within the federal government. Industry security professionals not affiliated with the DoD need to enter their CAGE code on My SPēD Certification when requesting authorization to test in order to link the individual with their associated facility. Contact your Facility Security Officer (FSO) if you do not know your CAGE code.
