Defend Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Program

Are you aware of the new wording in your contracts? Are you safeguarding your CUI? Do you have a security plan? No? We can help you.

GENEDGE has been granted funding from the Department of Defense and the Virginia Department of Veteran’s Affairs to pilot Virginia’s Defend CUI Program (DEFENDCUI-VA). This program helps Virginia companies improve their cyber security for Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). This grant will pay up to 80% of our costs so you can begin your journey to increased cybersecurity.
