What do you need to know about Controlled Unclassified Information?

As UVA researchers pursue more applied and translational research projects in partnership with federal, industry, and foundation collaborators, it is important for all of us involved in the research enterprise to understand the definition of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and the issues surrounding it. 

CUI covers a broad variety of information that may be used in University research and administrative activities; for example, patient medical records, student records, data provided in student financial aid applications, and research results subject to publication restrictions. 

Check out the University's CUI webpage for a general overview of what you need to know about CUI and how it is safeguarded and managed at UVA (includes guidance documents and training materials!).
