Increasing the Value Proposition: Export and Cyber Compliance


October 11, 2018 at 1:00 PM ET

Understanding the many channels of federal regulations that govern export control can be critical to a company’s future. Numerous regulations make it difficult for a company to maintain a sense of confidence that their export control program is current, sophisticated and robust enough to prevent stiff penalties. What makes these penalties even more frightening are the new cyber security requirements for all federal contractors.

This presentation provided an overview of the high-risk areas for export and cybersecurity violations, and what can be done to get into compliance quickly.  In addition, the presentation reviewed system security changes that are needed to get your company into compliance with the new cyber requirements.

This webinar (recording) was a presentation of the Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster and the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association. For more information, please visit www.NEESC.org or www.FCHEA.org
