Event Synopsis:

While technology can make transactions more efficient (especially when conducting business internationally),it does not exempt your firm from stringent scrutiny by regulatory agencies such as the DOJ, DDTC and BIS. The government has been stepping up in enforcement actions in this area. Social media, cloud computing and the internet along with employee travel with laptops and portable devices to name a few are some of the factors for companies to be vulnerable to export violation. It is therefore essential that companies are ahead of the curve to ensure that their export programs are following the rules.

In a two-hour Live webcast, the panel of speakers will address several key issues including:

- Classification of Technology Under EAR and ITAR

- Technology Control Plans

- Issues Relating To Licensing Technology Transfer and Releasing Technical Data

- Deemed Exports and I-129 Form

- Risk Assessments

- Regulatory Updates

- Best Practices and Strategies for Export Compliance
