Controlled unclassified information is
categories of unclassified information that require controls that protect it from public release, both to safeguard the civil liberties and legal rights of U.S. citizens, and to deny information advantage to those who threaten the security of the nation.
"The CUI marking replaces multiple
Sensitive But Unclassified ( SBU) categories with a uniform designation, while the framework specifies the requirements for designating, marking, safeguarding, and disseminating information designated as CUI. The CUI marking and framework will standardize the manner in which the intelligence and law enforcement communities store, manage, and share sensitive but unclassified information."
