What is it about?

As more and more data is stored in the cloud, U.S. trade control issues are a common challenge for most companies. This comprehensive and interactive workshop will examine topics including:

  • Who is responsible for knowing and communicating the export jurisdiction/classification of the data?
  • What are the different requirements if the data are ITAR or EAR controlled?
  • How are the trade compliance requirements maintained among the different players?
  • Who has responsibility for identifying, correcting and reporting a trade compliance issue if it arises?
  • How is reporting of the problem carried out (both to the USG and to others, including customers/vendors, etc.)?
  • What corrective steps would help prevent a recurrence of the problem?
  • What should be stored in the cloud?
  • What are your due diligence responsibilities as an exporter or user of the cloud?
  • What responsibilities are there of the cloud service provider?
