As an export compliance professional there are a wide variety of ways that you might find yourself needing to work closely with, and understanding the function of, your security department.  This webinar is designed to strengthen your knowledge and build bridges between your export compliance and security departments. In order to do your job effectively you need to work together with your counterpart in security.  Your missions are the same, to protect information and your facility. However, with two different set of regulations, export regulations and security regulations, it may seem impossible to work together cohesively. Besides the basics of the NIPSOM, this webinar will provide real world examples of how export and security partner in day-to-day activities.

Both export compliance and security departments often work together on the same programs, dealing with visitors at the facility, and authorizing approved access. Understanding export compliance’s role in security audits and helping security maintain compliance are also necessary and require both departments to understand one another.  The importance of this partnership is crucial to your company’s reputation and avoiding violations.     

If you’ve wondered where the line between export compliance and security is you’re not alone!  It’s a fuzzy one because there is overlap which requires both departments to weave their knowledge together in order to keep our country safe every single day. We will cover the following:
