You may need to comply with federal regulations if you work in areas that are impacted by these categories:

  1. Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)

Download the Power Point presentation slides


These regulations ensure that all UW-Madison students, faculty and staff, and research subjects need not worry about their personal identity information (including health care, credit card and other financial information) from being mishandled or improperly released. The potential consequences for improper use or handling of protected data may result in hefty fines and the loss of federal funding for research groups and the university.

Compliance issues can impact academic researchers, IT staff professionals, cybersecurity professionals, and financial and/or human resources staff. Hear more about the strategies and methods UW-Madison uses in the appropriate handling of protected data at an expert panel event on October 24.
