The Cybersecurity 202: A Biden Administration Could Mean a Reset in the US War on TikTok

Washington Post, November 12, 2020

By Tonya Riley

President Trump has waged war against popular video app TikTok. It's unclear what a President Biden would do. But the presidential election results could leave the company with more options.

Some in industry are hoping for a less impulsive and more transparent approach to security decisions.

“As the Biden administration considers how to address technology supply chain security, it is important that the focus is on risk management, not just the country of origin,” Victoria Espinel, President and CEO, BSA (The Software Alliance), told me in an email.
