Encryption, the Cloud, and Protecting Export Controlled Technology Under the New ITAR/EAR Regulations
Washington, DC, 12:30 PM GMT
On June 3, 2015, the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) of the Department of State and the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the Department of Commerce proposed regulations that, if implemented, will allow companies to store technical data/technology controlled under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) on the cloud even when the servers are located outside the United States. Join speakers from the two agencies, DDTC and BIS, who wrote the proposed rule, and a major IT services provider to learn:
- What you and your IT provider will need to implement to meet the requirements of the proposed regulations;
- What kind of encryption you will need to use;
- What are the hidden risks of the proposed regulations and how you can protect against them; and
- What are suggestions for improving the proposed regulations.
There will be a brown bag lunch before the program at 12:00 p.m. EDT in the Washington, DC location - drinks provided.
