National Security Regulation: Another Source of Enterprise Risk for Tech Companies

The U.S. Government administers certain laws regulating “international” business activities to advance priority U.S. national security objectives. These legal regimes, such as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, economic sanctions, and export controls, have been substantially enhanced in the last decade as U.S. policymakers have revisited the salience of regulation as an instrument of national security statecraft.
Technology innovation and operating models implicate these legal regimes in non-obvious (and, sometimes, counter-intuitive) ways. And, non-compliance with these rules can adversely impact business strategy and investment decisions, lead to significant individual and corporate civil and criminal penalties, and may even result in imprisonment for responsible persons.
This session, the Third Annual Kirkland & Ellis Law Forum, will review how these legal requirements represent not merely a compliance challenge for tech companies, but an enterprise risk vector for their boards and management teams.
