The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) outlines security standards for protecting controlled unclassified information (CUI) within university research and business operations. NIST encompasses 110 individual security controls, ranging from access control to incident response, and is becoming required for more and more university research contracts. ITS research compliance offers consultations to ensure university research meets proper regulatory and contractual restraints related to cybersecurity, thus protecting valuable data and giving researchers peace of mind.
