Understanding ITAR and EAR*, and the many channels of federal regulations that govern export control can be critical to a company’s future. Numerous regulations make it difficult for a company to maintain a sense of confidence that their export control program is current, sophisticated and robust enough to prevent stiff penalties. What makes these penalties even more frightening are the new cyber security requirements for all federal contractors.
Any violation of U.S. export controls, even one that is seemingly technical or inadvertent, could subject your company and any involved employees to severe criminal penalties including jail time, substantial civil penalties and fines, loss of export privileges, and suspension or debarment from contracting with the U.S. government and original equipment manufacturers (OEM).

In addition, the presentation will review system security changes that are needed to get your company into compliance with the new cyber requirements.
