Does the word “cloud” make you break out in a cold sweat even if people are just talking about the weather? Do you often feel like the only person who has reservations about the rapid rise of workplace information-sharing and collaboration applications? Are you tired of feeling that IT modernization is moving faster than export rules allow?

We hear you. As the digital world continues to advance faster than export control regulations, this brings both industry and the regulators into uncharted territory. It also underscores the need for a strong partnership between export compliance, IT, and security functions.
