The broad scope of CUI information presents a massive challenge for organizations that operate within both commercial and public sector areas. This talk will explore and walk the audience through the processes and strategies leveraged to to declassify and downgrade information properly when it is stored, processed and/or transmitted at a higher classification level. The goal is to bring some of classified information practices down to organizations and practitioners that are aiming to get a handle on proper CUI scoping, CUI definitions and managing information strictly related to COTS products. The audience will learn the following:
1. Need for declassification and risk of over classification of information
2. Challenges in scaling declassification programs
3. Historical declassifications
4. Application to commercial businesses
Declassification techniques discussed along with various references will be provided to the audience in order to employ declassification internally. Towards the end of the talk, the audience familiar with latest developments within AI can participate in challenging the current guidance as tools such as OpenAI and similar can potentially defeat current techniques available on information declassification.
