A Systematic Approach to Controlled Technical Data

NextLabs routinely advises customers whose businesses handle Controlled Technical Data (CTD) such as ITAR, EAR, and data controlled by non-US Jurisdictions, to take a proactive, systematic approach to managing CTD throughout its lifecycle. Many of these enterprises have been in business for a number of decades, during which time they have created substantial CTD organically, and acquired additional CTD through various business transactions and transformations. The CTD routinely spans every type of electronic storage that has ever been used in the enterprise. A portion of this CTD, in some cases a substantial portion, has reached Legacy CTD status, which means that it is no longer actively used in the normal business operations of the enterprise. more “A Systematic Approach to Controlled Technical Data”
