This Guide addresses the identification and protection of records, whether classified, controlled unclassified information (CUI), or unclassified. It highlights accessing information that Federal agencies need to conduct business under emergency operating conditions or to protect the legal and financial rights of the Federal government and the people it serves. This Guide also provides information to assist agencies assessing damage and implementing recovery of records affected by an emergency or disaster.
