Topics discussed included:

  • 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?
