Regulatory compliance updates
July 16, 2019: Azure Availability for research involving controlled unclassified information or export-controlled material
Researchers whose studies involve working with CUI or CUI export-controlled items that fall under ITAR or EAR should be aware that K-State’s officially approved electronic storage and communication method for such items is now Microsoft Azure. If you have questions about this or need to request access to Azure, email CUI@k-state.edu.
If an outside entity with whom you are working tries to use ANY other route to send such materials — e.g. unsecured email, unsecured website or cloud domain— do not open them and immediately report such attempt to CUI@k-state.edu. This is an important compliance issue and we have had trouble at least twice in the past with breaches such as this.
