From the Document: "Safeguarding classified and sensitive information is one of the most critical ways to maintain our national security. There are adversarial individuals and groups who make it their mission to gain access to critical information in hopes of weakening the United States. Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is government-created or owned unclassified information that must be safeguarded from unauthorized disclosure. CUI is an overarching term representing many different categories, each authorized by one or more laws, regulations, or government-wide policies. Because there are fewer controls over CUI as compared to classified information, CUI is an attractive target for adversaries. Loss of aggregated CUI is a significant risk to national security and can have a negative impact on the lethality of our warfighters. This article will explain the history of CUI, the importance of CUI, how it differs from classified information, who provides CUI guidance, and where to learn more about it."
