Join experts from Kharon and Wilkinson Barker Knauer for a strategic discussion on new regulatory challenges confronting the telecommunications sector.
Economic sanctions are a mainstay of global security policy, where the private sector is the front line of implementation. The evolving multinational sanctions regime targeting Russia includes globally integrated enterprises and high-net-worth individuals with material touch points to the telecom sector. In addition to sanctions, the communications sector is subject to compliance requirements set forth in Section 2 of the Secure Networks Act, which imposes restrictions on a number of Chinese and Russian enterprises on the FCC’s “covered list.”
The panelists also address the U.S. Commerce Department’s ICTS rule, which will create a new framework for regulating ICTS transactions with “foreign adversaries” such as Russia and China.
