The NITSIG would like to invite its members and other security professionals to the next meeting.

Topic Of Discussion
Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)

Background On Protecting CUI
On November 4, 2010, the President signed Executive Order 13556, Controlled unclassified Information. The Executive Order established a governmentwide CUI Program to standardize the way the executive branch handles unclassified information that requires protection. It designated the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as the Executive Agent to implement the program. The Archivist of the United States delegated these responsibilities to the Information Security Oversight Office.

The requirements for the protection of CUI provide a set of “minimum” security controls for contractor information systems upon which CUI is processed, stored on, or transmitted through contractor’s unclassified networks. These security controls must be implemented at both the contractor and subcontractor levels based on the information security guidance in NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-171: Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information In Non-Federal Information Systems And Organizations.

The CUI protection requirements are intended for use by federal agencies in contractual vehicles or other agreements established between those agencies and nonfederal organizations. Failure to implement the security controls to protect CUI, would be a breach of contract.

For an Insider Threat Program to be robust and effective, it must be built upon an established security foundation within an organization. The NIST SP 800-171 covers many security controls that can support Insider Threat Risk Mitigation.

This meeting is also very well suited for any organization or business that is not required to protect CUI, but is looking to enhance their Information Systems Security Program / Insider Threat Program.

Presentation - Topic Of Discussion
Going Beyond Compliance Requirements For Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information

This presentation will focus on understanding simple techniques that "Malicious Insiders" can use to exfiltrate data and other valuable information from within an organization. These techniques have successfully been used to exfiltrate sensitive business information during Insider Threat Risk Assessments. Understanding the "Malicious Insiders Playbook" of options is critical.
