Federal agencies routinely generate, use, store, and share information that, while not meeting the standards for classified national security information, requires safeguarding and dissemination controls. CUI is not a new classification level below Confidential.
CUI is unclassified information that meets the standards for safeguarding and dissemination controls pursuant to law, regulations, and government-wide policies under E.O. 13556. Previously, similar information may have been referred to as Sensitive But Unclassified ("SBU") throughout the executive branch and some of this information may meet the requirements to become CUI.
