Controlled Unclassified Information: It's Not Just an IT Problem

Tuesday, May 14 | 4:00PM–5:00PM CT | Vevey 4, Second Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Panel Presentation
During this session, panelists will discuss the "other" challenges with supporting controlled unclassified information (CUI) or other regulated research that are not the IT challenges—security controls, technology, or regulations. Topics will include the use of research facilitators dedicated to regulated research, building relationships between campus IT organizations, appropriate compliance offices, research administration, IRBs, and export control offices, as well as improving institutional processes. Ultimately the goal is to create a systematic approach that results in rapid flow from contracts to actionable technical requirements to implementation to approval, so that research data can begin in the minimum possible time frame.

Outcomes: Understand the different roles involved in a systemic CUI environment * Learn best practices to build a CUI ecosystem * Identify training opportunities by various administrative and IT roles associated with CUI handling
