How do I know if something is Cui?

Information labeled Some forms of data are easy to recognize as CUI. "Export control" refers to any information subject to export control, such as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the Export Administration Regulations (EAR)—this is CUI. So too are the names of countries and their agencies: State Department's Bureau of Industry and Security, CIA, etc.

Data that cannot be easily identified or categorized but which are still important to keep track of can also be considered CUI. For example, a spreadsheet showing prices across different manufacturers would be considered CUI because it cannot easily be identified as belonging to one specific manufacturer. However, by comparing the spreadsheets from two different years, one could possibly identify patterns in price changes over time that might lead one to believe that certain manufacturers were engaging in predatory pricing practices. This kind of analysis would be difficult without access to the CUI.

Finally, some data that may not fit neatly into either of the previous categories can still be considered CUI. For example, a document containing the names of companies who had been granted export licenses would be considered CUI because it does not readily fit into another category. However, this same document would contain useful information for someone trying to find out which companies were being licensed, so it would be helpful if that person could identify which companies were which when searching through its contents.

What qualifies as "cui"?

CUI is information generated or held by the government that necessitates safeguarding or distribution controls in accordance with relevant laws, regulations, and government-wide policies. CUI is not a classified piece of information. The common types of CUI are as follows: • Census Data • Social Security Numbers • Financial Information

The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. § 552a) requires federal agencies to protect personal data they collect from employees and applicants. This law also mandates that agencies provide individuals with notice of how their personal data will be used, and allow them to opt out of these uses. Agencies must comply with the Privacy Act's requirements for employment records maintained by their departments or agencies.

An individual's criminal record is an example of information that may be contained in an agency file. The following would be considered criminal record information: name, address, date of birth, gender, race, religion, social security number, fingerprints, photographs, medical records, disciplinary actions taken against the employee, etc. Criminal record information must be kept secure from public access. The Department of Defense maintains a central index of criminal records for active duty service members. Other federal agencies maintain similar databases. State and local governments also maintain criminal records.

Individuals should know the types of records an agency keeps on them, and what uses agents make of those records.

What documents are cui?

CUI is unclassified material connected with a legislation, rule, or government-wide policy that has been designated as needing protecting. It necessitates access control, handling, tagging, dissemination restrictions, and other safeguards. The term is short for "cited in the index."

Generally speaking, any document that would be protected under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) should be cited in the CUI database. FOIA exemptions can be found at 5 U.S.C. § 552(b).

In addition to these guidelines, each agency determines what it means by a "cui" designation. Generally, if you request an official copy of the law that lists a CUI number, then the material you receive will be considered a "cui". If you have additional questions about how an agency defines "cui", contact them directly.

Is "Cui" a classification?

Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is information that requires safeguarding or dissemination controls in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, and government-wide policies but is not classified as "Classified National Security Information" under Executive Order 13526 or the Atomic Energy Act, as amended. CUI does not include information that has been approved for public release through an existing open process.

In addition to CUI, DOE also maintains Control Data Files which are collections of information obtained from licensees, contractors, and other sources concerning their compliance with the requirements of their licenses. These files are used by DOE's Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research to plan its activities and report on its accomplishments related to nuclear energy research and development.

The Cui and Control Data File names are listed in an online directory available on the NRC website.

What does "Cui" stand for in the Army?

Unclassified Controlled Information (CUI) The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security is the component that started it all. In October 1993, the office created the Civil Liberties Protection Program within the Director of Central Intelligence's (DCI) National Security Division.

They provide policy guidance on issues such as surveillance, detention, and torture. They also work with other agencies within the government to ensure that intelligence activities are not violating civil liberties. Their goal is to help prevent future abuses by providing advice and training to agents conducting investigations.

Within the Department of Defense (DOD), the term CUI refers to information that has not been classified Secret, Confidential, or Top Secret but which must nonetheless be controlled under regulations promulgated by the Secretary of Defense. This includes information regarding the plans and intentions of foreign governments as well as the military forces of those countries; information about U.S. government programs and operations, including grants programs administered by the DOD's General Services Administration; and information regarding U.S. allies and partners.

In addition to its role in oversight of the DOD's intelligence activities, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence reviews and approves agency budgets before they are submitted to Congress.

What is Cui DOD?

Unless it is generated for or included in criteria connected to a government contract, it is not business intellectual property. The Department of Defense (DOD) specifically excludes from its jurisdiction data that is not controlled under federal law, including state and local privacy laws.

For example, software created by DOD employees that is not subject to the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) may include trade secrets that otherwise would be protected by federal law. These standards ensure the security and integrity of defense information by requiring that all computer systems used by DOD comply with applicable FIPS guidelines. Additionally, trade secrets contained in military applications often are excluded from being patented because they could be used against the government if disclosed. Finally, copyright protects original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression, including databases. Copyright also protects the ideas embodied in those works as well as their specific expressions, but not necessarily their generic structures or functions. Thus, copyrighted works can be considered "secret" even if they are published or available elsewhere. Secret law includes domestic laws that limit freedom of speech, press, and assembly as well as international treaties that limit these freedoms too.

Secret law can be defined as any law that restricts freedom of speech, press, and assembly.
