CUI Training

Controlled Unclassified Information

Understanding how to work with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) can be confusing. Federal agencies previously used ad hoc and agency-specific policies, procedures, and markings (such as FOUO or SBU) for CUI. Now there are new requirements for sensitive information created by or on behalf of the U.S. federal government.

In fact, anyone under any contractual obligation with the DoD is required to receive initial and annual CUI training—even if they don't access CUI.

Our training will help you move confidently from legacy systems to the requirements established by Executive Order 13556, Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), DFARS Clause 52.204-7012, and 32 Code of Federal Regulations Part 2002.

By using the CUI Life Cycle™ as your roadmap, you’ll learn:

  • Which regulations apply to your organization

  • The authorized holder of a document or material is responsible for determining, at the time of creation, whether information in a document or material falls into a CUI category

  • CUI marking requirements

  • CUI dissemination instructions

  • CUI storage requirements (NIST 800-171 Revision 2 compliance and CMMC level 3 or higher maturity)

Plus, you’ll do it in a training platform that’s easy to use, low cost, mobile friendly, and cloud accessible.





You can take the first step by downloading this free high resolution (2560x1600) desktop background for systems that process CUI.
