This is Session 3 of a 3-part series on export control.

Our export controls trilogy reaches a riveting conclusion with a discussion of U.S. encryption controls. This webinar will explore encryption controls in place under the U.S. Export Administration Regulations, the various de-control notes that are available, the function of License Exception ENC, and how encryption controls might evolve in the future.

Note that this webinar will provide an introductory or “101”-type discussion of encryption controls.  Your feedback during and after the session, in particular with regard to more detailed practical issues that are of interest to you, is most welcome.  Based on your feedback, a subsequent webinar may address the practical concerns you raise.
