Ten Things You Must Know Before Taking your Laptop Overseas

Meeting Description:

Researchers commonly take their laptops along during overseas research-related travel. But what US regulations and prohibitions must they be aware of? Does it matter who owns the laptop, or which countries are being visited? Are there specific exemptions or exceptions which apply? Does it matter what is on the laptop? Does it matter how you log-in to your secure email overseas?


Key topics will include: 

  • Lessons learned: what to do and what to avoid
  • Special rules
  • Travel Checklists
  • Available resources

In addition, learn how privacy and security protection might conflict with export controls; why your vulnerability does not end when you return to the US; and what foreign operatives and US prosecutors have in common. 


Updated with recent events, cases and government warnings for 2013.
