Doreen M. Edelman speaks to The Deal about the national security challenges raised for any American corporation buying TikTok's U.S. business. “The devil will be in all the details, and that will be something important for other companies to watch,” she says, adding that “[w]ith the Trump administration fearful that Beijing mines personal information for espionage, blackmail and stolen identities, a ban on foreign access to user data is likely.” She warns that CFIUS mitigation for this transaction may be necessary: “There will have to be separate servers, locations will not be in China, [and] there will be different policies and procedures that will affect the U.S. company.”
