For those who are new to exporting, to the experienced exporter, one of the most vital considerations when conducting business overseas is ensuring your business interests are being protected. Such interests include the compliance with U.S. export control laws, carefully evaluating your potential overseas business partner, and the importance of travel safety as businesses are entering new markets and send employees to unfamiliar and sometimes dangerous, areas around the world. Additionally, recent events have taught us that any company, small or large, can become a victim to cyber-crime, identity theft, and the loss of proprietary information, all leading to financial damage, as well as the loss of consumers’ confidence in an organization. Come join us for this seminar on Protecting Your Business Interests and learn the ways to mitigate your overall risk, comply with U.S. Export Control Laws, travel safely abroad, and carefully evaluate your international business partners.
