What Exactly is CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information) Webinar is a virtual event that aims to provide participants with an understanding of what Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is and how it affects their organizations. The webinar will cover the basics of CUI, its importance, and how it can be handled by organizations that deal with Federal information. The webinar will be hosted by Cleared Systems and will provide participants with the opportunity to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of CUI.
Defense Industrial Base (DIB) has become a target of increasingly complex and frequent cyberattacks. To protect the FCI (Federal Contract Information) and CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information), in November 2021, OUSD A&S announced CMMC 2.0. It aims to dynamically improve the DIB cybersecurity to meet the evolving cyber threats, instill a collaborative culture of cyber resilience and cybersecurity, and ensure accountability while reducing barriers to compliance.
Corporations allow their employees to access data using cloud software and mobile devices regardless of their location. As a result, the security perimeter has grown beyond the office walls. Valuable data is transferred between IaaS, SaaS, IoT devices, data centers, and many more platforms and devices.
Cybersecurity incidences continue impacting consumers and entities worldwide. The impact of a single incident can be profound. Although people often focus on their personally identifiable information (PII) being stolen and the impact this would have on their life, if specific information related to the Department of Defense (DoD) got into the wrong hands, the impact on all of us would be considerable. The cybersecurity requirements for the DoD are pretty elaborate since the security measures must address the information held by DoD and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
How Is Controlled Unclassified Information Changing?
Certainly, it sounds official and has all the makings for a Jason Bourne-style thriller about espionage and government conspiracies. It also could make a good title for the next hit crime series if placed before the name of a racy city. Its history of more mysterious aliases such as “sensitive but unclassified,” “official use only,” and “law enforcement sensitive” only makes it more intriguing. But what is CUI? Should your company even care about it?

“CMMC 2.0 Consultants” are everywhere. Companies claiming to be CMMC 2.0 consultants and expertise in SP 800-171 Rev. 2. Most of these same companies have little to no experience in CMMC 2.0 or even Federal information compliance. They are chasing buzzwords and your hard-earned money.
We have developed an informative and comprehensive article about CMMC compliance that will help you understand the topic in detail. In this article, we will discuss what CMMC compliance is, why it’s important, and what the different levels of cybersecurity maturity are. Our aim is to provide you with the knowledge you need to navigate this complex subject and stay ahead of the competition.
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a set of cybersecurity standards developed by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to ensure that companies that work with the government have adequate cybersecurity measures in place. CMMC Level 3 is the third level of certification in the CMMC model and is designed for companies that handle Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) that is critical to the mission of the DoD. In this article, we will discuss the basics of CMMC Level 3 and what you need to know to achieve compliance.
