CUI Fundamentals

The United States Federal Government’s Controlled Unclassified Information (“CUI”) program fundamentally transforms the way the government identifies and handles unclassified, but still sensitive, information.  The CUI program impacts everyone who handles CUI.  This includes:

  • federal employees;
  • state and local government employees;
  • employees of foreign governments; and,
  • federal government contractors.

If you handle, or expect to handle, CUI, you must understand at least the basics of the CUI program.  That is where CUI Fundamentals comes in.

CUI Fundamentals walks you through the basics of the CUI program. CUI Fundamentals is written as a series of 100 questions and easy to understand answers.  It covers questions such as:

  • What motivated the government to create the CUI program, and why do I care?
  • What is the difference between classified information, CUI, and FCI?
  • What is the difference between designating and marking information as CUI?
  • Who is authorized to designate information as CUI?
  • Who is authorized to mark information as CUI?
  • How should government contractors handle legacy information?
  • How should government contractors handle information they suspect to be CUI?

And much more!
