Cloud technology has grown to become the standard for storing, sharing and accessing data for most businesses. However, companies using the cloud to store export-controlled tech data or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers using the cloud to distribute software functionality must take special precautions to ensure that they remain compliant with U.S. export control laws. Both the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) have provisions that allow for cloud usage for export-controlled technical data under certain conditions, but companies must be vigilant and implement data security protocols in order to remain compliant.

Most recently, the cloud is back in the export control spotlight, with the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issuing a proposed rule in early 2024 that would require U.S. cloud or Infrastructure as a Service providers (IaaS) to create sweeping new programs to identify and track foreign customers while also authorizing BIS to block or restrict IaaS transactions in certain foreign jurisdictions or with certain foreign persons. The proposed rule also implements reporting requirements for IaaS providers when foreign customers use U.S. cloud infrastructure for certain AI applications.

Join us for this webinar that will review best practices and requirements for compliance when using the cloud for export-controlled technical data. The webinar will also discuss the allowances for cloud usage under the EAR and the ITAR while providing guidance for implementing effective data security protocols. Finally, the webinar will discuss the new proposed rule for IaaS providers and what this may mean for the future of export controls as they relate to the cloud.
