Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Compliance – Protection of Unclassified Government Information
What is CUI Compliance?
CUI Compliance is essentially being able to pass an audit when measured against NIST 800-171. It encompasses the protection of sensitive federal information that resides on nonfederal systems and organizations. Failure to comply with these security protocols can directly impact the ability of the federal government to successfully carry out its designated missions and business operations, including those missions and functions related to the critical infrastructure.
CUI – Protect it or Lose the Business
While organizations still need to protect CUI, the system and process to do so is now called CMMC Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification.
Defense Cybersecurity Assistance Program
If you are a Maryland Defense Contractor with a physical location in Maryland and provide 10% or more DoD related business OR a contract/procurement request for compliance, you may qualify for the program.
Your Organization’s Security is too important to risk
Are your IT Staff Compliance Experts?
Chances are, they are not. Get them the support they need to be sure your data is safe.
CUI Compliance testing – The process
Compliance starts with a Gap Analysis – where you are now with your current policies, platform, infrastructure, operations, and training.
We build a plan of actions with milestones (POA&M) to help you fill in the discovered gaps.
- We test the implementations of the remediation.
- We train for security awareness.
- We identify and confirm security roles and responsibilities.
The deliverables are the policies, procedures, tests, and tracking system of the compliance status all bundled in a “compliance package” that an auditor can use to confirm the organization is in compliance with the security controls required by the government to secure CUI data.
