Based on lessons learned as a result of the 9/11 attacks, the United States Government's Controlled Unclassified Information ("CUI") program fundamentally reshapes the way the Federal Government identifies and protects unclassified but still sensitive information. Among other changes, it requires those handling CUI to shift from a "need-to-know" to a "lawful government purpose" mindset and to properly identify and mark CUI before it is disseminated. Transformational changes such as these are never quick nor are they easy, especially at the scale of the United States Federal Government.


As the government adopts these changes, a lot of misinformation is being spread about the CUI program. That misinformation makes it hard for those handling CUI to truly understand what is expected, and required, of them.


That's where this book comes in. It cuts through the misinformation and teaches you critical concepts such as:


  • How to identify CUI
  • The difference between designating and marking CUI
  • Who is authorized to designate CUI
  • How to properly mark CUI
  • Who is authorized to handle CUI
  • The difference between need-to-know and lawful government purpose
  • How to safeguard CUI
  • What to do in the event of a CUI spill
  • And much more

In short, it helps you become ... CUI Informed.


If you are looking for a high-level overview of the CUI program, this probably isn't the right book for you. My other book on the CUI program, CUI Fundamentals, explores the topic through a series of 100 questions (and answers ). It will give you the knowledge you need to spot potential misinformation without you having to wade through all the gory details of the CUI program.


If you are a compliance professional, Contracting Officer, lawyer, policymaker, or are in another role that needs a deep understanding of the CUI program, this is the book for you.


In short, this book will help you become...CUI Informed.
