Central United States Registry Mission Statement

The Central United States Registry (CUSR) provides Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) and document security oversight to all NATO affiliated agencies and organizations within the United States. Information is distributed through a "Registry System"where there are Sub-Registries and subordinate Control Points that control NATO information. NATO information is requested from the Central Registry where it is carefully processed and marked prior to distribution within the registry system. NATO has determined that every member nation will maintain a “Central Registry” that will be the primary point of contact for all NATO information for their country. U.S. responsibility is delegated from the Secretary of Defense down to the Secretary of the Army and thus establishing the CUSR under the Office of the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of the Army. The CUSR resides within the Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA) Directorate of Mission Assurance.
