The “ITAR Encryption Carve-Out”

A New Paradigm for a Secure Digital Defense
Supply Chain

The International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) regulates technical data used for the development and manufacture of defense articles and services. Previous rules prevented technical data from being stored and shared in cloud environments due to export risks, but a new rule allows technical data protected with end-to-end encryption to be stored and shared in the cloud.

The new ITAR rule, effective March 25th, is poised to unlock productivity and enable new digital workflows that modernize the defense industrial base and supply chain. Join us for an educational webinar on April 16th @ 1pm EDT, featuring pre-eminent ITAR thought leader, Robert Monjay, to: 

  • Learn how ITAR’s overarching goals reinforce US national security and foreign policy.
  • Review the roles of agencies supporting ITAR and key terms and concepts (e.g. USML, technical data, export controls).
  • Discuss key compliance requirements and concerns surrounding the electronic storage and transmission of ITAR technical data.
  • Examine how the new “ITAR Encryption Carve-Out” will transform digital supply chain workflows and unlock productivity.
  • Learn how to implement a robust ITAR compliance strategy with processes, policies, and technology that use end-to-end encryption to keep technical data compliant throughout your supply chain.
  • Explore solutions from Maven Wave and Virtru, Google’s recommended partners for cloud migration and encryption in G Suite
