ITAR Security Compliance

Introduction

INTERNATIONAL TRAFFIC IN ARMS REGULATIONS [ITAR] is a United States regulation to control the export and import of defence services, technology and defence articles. ITAR was sanctioned in 1976 during the Cold War with USSR. From 1976 to 2014 U.S. government has made many amendments in ITAR. Recently in 2014, U.S. removed satellite technology from ITAR regulation to increase export in this area.

ITAR AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Information technology is a key enabler for the entire defence system of any country. It covers all the areas like technology development and evolution, device manufacturing, knowledge management, sell and export. IT is also involved in employee/soldiers training and it is also covered in the ITAR.

The USML items can be traded and transferred employingnetwork systems,internet, intranet or any other digital medium. It might lead to data theft, data leakage and unapproved retransfer of USML items.ITAR enforces strict regulations and requires use of strong controls for the use of information technology. Data Classification becomes very essential to achieve ITAR compliance.
