As the reliance on cloud computing expands across industries and jurisdictions, U.S. regulatory agencies continue to expand what they consider to be export activity as well as their oversight. As panelists explained during a recent program sponsored by Strafford CLE Webinars, government opinions related to Export Administration Regulations, Office of Foreign Assets Control and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations rules may offer the best insight into what to do to remain compliant, but increasingly broad and headline-grabbing enforcement actions provide some of the greatest lessons in what not to do. The panelists – Michael T. Gershberg, a partner at Fried Frank, Michael Grant, counsel at Dechert, and Alexandra Baj, a partner at Steptoe & Johnson – discussed recent actions, best practices for compliance and the nuances in the regulations.
