Data Type Description
Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), as defined by Executive Order 13556 (2010), is federal non-classified information that must be safeguarded by implementing a uniform set of requirements and information security controls directed at securing sensitive government information. CUI requirements do not apply directly to non-federal entities, but can flow down when U-M research projects receive, possess or create such information for or on behalf of the U.S. government under the terms of a contract, grant, or other agreement.
