Dear Sirs and Madam, The Rule should incorporate the standards laid out by the Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) program, which is an Executive branch wide standard that encompasses financial information. The framework for the safeguarding, dissemination, marking, and decontrol of CUI is governed by EO 13556, NIST Guidance 800-171, and the CUI Registry. Utilizing this framework to align standards promulgated under the Safeguarding Rule will improve the efficiency and efficacy of information sharing and security since financial information in the government, including the Department of the Treasury, FDIC, Fed Reserve, FBI, White House, etc. will all be using this standard to safeguard financial information. Kind regards,
