Computing Considerations


U.S. export control laws control exports of sensitive equipment, software and technology, and also prohibit transactions with certain foreign individuals and states. Under U.S. export control laws, sharing of controlled data may require a government approval or license before it may be shared with non-U.S. persons, regardless of location.
University faculty and staff should exercise caution when using cloud services and handling export controlled information. In general, cloud services do not offer a sufficient level of security to ensure that export controlled data and information is adequately protected. If you are not sure if your technology/information is subject to export control regulations, contact the export control office,, for assistance.
