The main focus of the program was on ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) and the roles and importance of EAR (Export Administration Regulations). OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) were also covered. Experts from the FBI provided actual case studies and best practices to protect your business and technology.
