At the most recent InfoSec Europe Conference we thought it would be a worthwhile exercise to survey IT professionals about their beliefs on U.S.-based clouds. Of the 117 IT professionals we surveyed, more than half (51%) of respondents stated that they do not fully trust U.S.-based clouds. In addition, 62 percent of respondents believed that this response is justified based on reports of the NSA having visibility into data in U.S.-based clouds.

While the benefits of the cloud are clear for enterprises, including improved operational efficiencies and cost savings, last year’s revelations of Government surveillance programmes by US and UK governments have many organisations concerned about the privacy of customer data and other sensitive business information – including intellectual property – sent to the cloud.

The U.S. Department of State‘s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) today announced it will allow technical data secured using Perspecsys tokenization to be processed outside the country through the cloud without obtaining an export license under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
Perspecsys said DDTC reinterpreted the ITAR to authorize the use of its tokenization to process ITAR technical data in the cloud without a license.

Today, enterprise cloud data protection company Perspecsys announced it had received a written ruling from the U.S Department of State’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) confirming that technical data secured using Perspecsys tokenization can be processed outside the U.S. through the cloud without obtaining an export license under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
What does that all mean? For those not familiar with tokenization, let’s take a step back. It’s been discussed in various industries. In healthcare, for example, as an Intel blog points out:
Tokenization removes the data from harm’s way. This is especially useful in healthcare environments where so many varied users have access to the protected information including doctors, clinicians, partner hospitals, HMOs, insurance providers, drug companies, clinics, and government agencies. When patient data is tokenized, the report that is emailed insecurely now contains tokens instead of social security numbers. The vendor spreadsheet now contains tokenized patient names, phone numbers and email addresses. The doctor’s laptop now holds medical record numbers that are actually tokens.

The State Department has ruled that cloud-security firm Perspecsys can process data via the cloud outside the United States without an export license, the firm announced June 4.
The State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls deemed that the International Traffic in Arms Regulations allow tokenized technical data to be sent to servers outside the U.S., the firm said. The ruling opens the cloud to companies subject to ITAR restrictions.
