Technology May-rathon: Exporting Through the Clouds

Thursday, May 8, 2014
01:00 PM - 02:00 PM ET

Transferring technical data or information using cloud computing services require export licenses from Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and/or International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) if the cloud is in the foreign country. Please join us for a one hour webinar to discuss this cutting-edge issue and to learn how U.S. export controls may impact your use of cloud computing services.

The issues discussed 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?
