Back by popular demand, Attorney Alfredo Fernandez will conduct a CLE webinar entitled "Export Controls in the Cloud." He will provide practical guidance on how to balance the risks and benefits of using cloud-based software and storage services with respect to export controls compliance.

As most high-technology industries continue shifting how they access and store data (e.g., from onsite servers to cloud-based resources), the compliance challenges also evolve. The use of cloud-based services presents a compelling upside, but companies must understand the impact to export controls and reduce the risk of violations. Because cloud technology is now burgeoning into the mainstream, the legal framework is still fluid and beginning to develop with limited government guidance.

The presentation will address:

  • The basics of cloud computing
  • Key definitions under the ITAR and EAR
  • Understanding the need for “end-to-end encryption”
  • Understanding how and where your data is “at rest”
  • Managing “access” and “potential access”
  • Key takeaways from available government and industry guidance
