Jeffrey Richardson to Discuss How Export Controls Can Affect Companies Using Cloud Technology At Webinar

December 2, 2014

Miller Canfield senior attorney Jeffrey Richardson will discuss how export control regulations can affect companies using “the Cloud” at a live The Knowledge Group webinar  on December 8, 2014 from 12-2 pm ET. 

In the “Export Control in the Cloud: What You Need To Know in 2015,” Richardson will join three other attorneys to provide exporters, their legal counsel, and cloud service users and providers with an overview of the latest trends in regulations and best practices regarding using the Cloud in Export Controls. 

These issues are growing in importance for businesses doing business internationally as “cloud computing” becomes more prevalent as less expensive and more efficient than managing massive internal corporate networks that may store sensitive data overseas. This practice and the use of cloud based export-control software could subject the user and provider to export compliance obligations. Where they fail to comply with the regulations, they face potential civil and criminal penalties. 

Richardson’s presentation will focus on the impact of export controls on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers. He is an international/export controls lawyer that assists clients in the information technology and defense sectors on matters including mergers and acquisitions, distribution agreements, joint ventures, and strategic corporate structuring.

A limited number of complimentary passes to the webinar are available by emailing Michelle Jurkiw at
