U.S. Government: Draft Sets Rules Governing Controlled Unclassified Info
From the Federal Times:
The Information Security Oversight Office published a draft document on the Federal Register outlining how agencies should designate, mark and manage dissemination of controlled unclassified information (CUI).
The draft document explains what data qualifies as CUI, procedures for transmitting, safeguarding and “decontrolling” the information and establishing a management structure around CUI policies.
The new rule would apply to all executive branch agencies, as well as information regularly disseminated to organizations outside the executive branch.
Agencies used more than 100 different markings to identify CUI in the past, prompting President Obama to issue an executive order in 2010 to streamline the governing regulations.
