Cloud, Cybersecurity, Encryption and Export Compliance: Assessing the Future of U.S. and Wassenaar Controls

We are in the midst of very dynamic times for information technology export controls. Recent BIS and upcoming DDTC rules will significantly enhance allowances for controlled technology and software to be stored or transmitted via the cloud. Encryption export regulations are also being updated. And the U.S. has gone back to the drawing board to draft a revised rule to implement Wassenaar controls on information security technology, software and services. These U.S. and Wassenaar cybersecurity rules are actively being negotiated and drafted in late 2016 and early 2017.

Roz Thomsen, one of the nation’s leading authorities on information technology export controls, will discuss the latest on these issues. He will talk about the Wassenaar export controls on Intrusion Software and IP Network Surveillance Systems, the changes to the Export Administration Regulations governing Cloud Computing, and the last gasp of the Export Control Reform Initiative, updating the Encryption regulations.
