TikTok global chief security officer steps down


TikTok’s global chief security officer Roland Cloutier is stepping down, after being with the company for two years. The move comes on the wake of TiKTok updating its data management and governance systems working with Oracle.

Mr. Cloutier will continue to work in a strategic advisory role. “With our recent announcement about data management changes in the US, it’s time for me to transition from my role as Global Chief Security Officer into a strategic advisory role focusing on the business impact of security and trust programs, working directly with Shou, Dingkun and other senior leaders,” he said in a statement.

Kim Albarella will serve as interim head of TikTok’s Global Security organization.
