Presidential Executive Order 13556; Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)
ISO/IEC 27001 can provide up to 87% compliance.
Q: How can I tell if CUI applies to me?

A: The Executive Order is applicable when the effort involves Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). CUI is unclassified information that: 

1) Requires safeguarding or dissemination controls pursuant to and consistent with law, regulations, and Government-wide policies information, as described in the CUI Registry; 

2) Is provided to the contractor or is collected, developed, used, or stored by the contractor, in support of the performance of the contract; and 

3) Is marked or otherwise identified in the contract, task order, or delivery order. The clause is required for use in all Government solicitations and contracts, and must be included in subcontracts for operationally critical support or which involve CUI.
