Cloud Based Computing and Videoconferencing and Export Controls

Do not store export-controlled data or software on any cloud computing services including OneDrive for Business. Options for cloud computing services for Export-controlled data are very limited.

Cloud-based videoconferencing systems, such as Zoom, WebEx, or Microsoft Teams are not export control compliant.

UCCS researchers should not discuss or share export-controlled data or technology (including screenshots, screenshares, recordings) using videoconferencing systems, as these cloud-based systems are without end-to-end encryption protections and users can be located all over the world.  Only use export compliant data-sharing and collaboration tools for sharing export-controlled data and technology. 

If you have questions or would like to explore using cloud-based computing or  videoconferencing  on your export-controlled project please contact Mike Sanderson in the OSPRI via email at exportcontrol@uccs.edu
