Secrecy News reports that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the latest federal agency to spell out what it means by “Sensitive But Unclassified” information. Their definition Nostly embraces 13 other designators such as SASI, which has something to do with select agents, not bureaucratic response. The directive notes that a SBU designation on a document does not mean it should be withheld, just as the absence of a SBU designation does not mean a document should be released. The short version: review everything before releasing information. (8/2/05)
