Please join Morgan Lewis for a timely webinar to discuss this cloud computing and to learn how U.S. export controls may impact your use of cloud computing services.

If you now use, or are contemplating using, any cloud computing services in conjunction with any technical data or information that is export controlled under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and/or International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), you probably have questions on the process.

Topics will include:

  • What is "cloud computing"?
  • Do you know when or whether your tech data/information is going off to a virtual cloud located on a server in Elbonia?
  • What positions do the Bureau of Industry and Security and the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls actually take with respect to cloud computing under the EAR and ITAR?
  • What is the export control exposure for unlicensed export violations by cloud service providers and cloud service users?
  • What steps can you take to mitigate possible unlicensed export violation exposure?
