Protecting Sensitive ITAR Information: A Data-Centric Approach to Export Control Compliance
Organisations that handle ITAR-related material have a duty to control it appropriately; to protect national security, the confidentiality of customers and partners, and also their own employees, business and reputation.
In this paper, discover how taking a proactive approach to managing and controlling ITAR protected information through user-driven data classification reduces the risk of inappropriate disclosure and export control violations. This, in turn, will safeguard against the fines, remediation costs and criminal penalties, including jail sentences for those held accountable, that can follow. Furthermore, in the event of an investigation or contravention of ITAR regulations, user-driven data classification allows an organisation to quickly demonstrate its compliance position, with a clear audit trail and accurate reporting that proves information is being appropriately controlled and documented.
