Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) And Why It Matters!
As we all do our daily jobs in an ever-changing work environment, it’s important to safeguard NASA’s information.
Established by Executive Order 13556 [PDF], and implemented by 32 CFR part 2002, the CUI Program is now being implemented across NASA and all Executive Branch agencies and departments. The goal of the new CUI program is to standardize how sensitive information is marked, handled and shared, while ensuring the information remains appropriately protected.
Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is information that requires safeguarding or dissemination controls pursuant to and consistent with applicable law, regulations, and government-wide policies but is not classified under Executive Order 13526 or the Atomic Energy Act, as amended.
- June 30, 2020, NASA initiated a Controlled Unclassified Information Awareness Campaign. During this CUI Awareness Campaign individuals became familiar with the following:
- CUI Implementation Timeline
- NASA’s issuance of an Internal Marking Waiver that permitted SBU and CUI to coexist until October 1, 2021 for NASA.
- NASA CUI Waivers
- Initial CUI Training deployed
- October 1, 2021, NASA fully incorporated the CUI nomenclature for information that requires safeguarding or dissemination controls pursuant to and consistent with applicable law, regulations, and government-wide policies
- NPR 2810.7 Controlled Unclassified Information released
Note: Legacy SBU information will not be remarked unless it is reused or disseminated with another Agency
